What is the RIE Approach?
RIE (pronounced “rye”) stands for “Resources for Infant Educarers.” This approach was founded in 1978 by Magda Gerber, a Hungarian immigrant and early childhood educator who lived in Los Angeles.
“Educarer” is a term coined with the idea that parents and caregivers should have respect for even the youngest of infants. According to Gerber and others, babies should be treated as capable and understanding of the world around them, able to learn and flourish if given safe space and freedom from too much adult direction.
The ultimate goal with RIE is to nurture what’s referred to as an “authentic” child. This means your little one should move about in daily life feeling secure, competent, autonomous and connected to their environment.
