Creating peaceful and quality programs in group care can be challenging. Early Childhood Educators in Perth have the opportunity to learn about Magda Gerber's respectfully Educaring® Approach to caregiving, and learn how to build authentic relationships with the infants and toddlers in their care. Being with Baby is very excited to announce the first RIE® FOUNDATIONS: THEORY & OBSERVATION™ course to be held in June.


This approach gives a new perspective on how we view even the youngest infant, as a unique individual, and teaches us how to trust their in born capacities to learn and discover the world. 


For over 50 years, RIE® has lead the world in education for infants and toddlers in early learning settings.

RIE® helps raise authentic infants who are competent, confident, curious, attentive, exploring, co-operative, secure, peaceful, focussed, self-initiating, resourceful, involved, inner-directed, aware and interested.

This 10-day intensive course is for students, parents (including expectant) and professionals looking to develop and deepen their understanding of infant development and care.

Course content includes an overview of Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach -including gross motor, fine motor, and social-emotional development of the infant, designing the environment, planning the curriculum, and issues in parenting/caregiving.
