Our Parenting Place is excited to share that Kira has completed the RIE certification program. After completing the Foundations, Practicum and Internship in RIE’s mentorship program, which took five years, she was awarded her certificate and joined the Alliance of RIE Associates last month during the Membership Meeting at the RIE Conference on April 6th. This means she is now a full-fledged RIE Associate. You might want to know that through this process, which took her five years, Kira has become one of only 50 RIE Associates in the world.
RIE (pronounced ‘rye’) is the acronym for Resources for Infant Educarers, a non-profit founded by Magda Gerber in 1978. Gerber, who passed away in 2007, was well known for introducing the idea of respecting infants and seeing them as confident, competent individuals. The organization carries on her mission of improving the care of infants worldwide.
We are in the process of getting our parent-infant classes certified through the RIE Program. Stay tuned for further updates!
