RIE® Parent-Infant Guidance™ Classes


Facilitated by two RIE® Associates - Anna Ruth Myers and Leith Speer Barton - small groups of parents, caregivers and children come together in a relaxing, child-friendly environment to take pleasure in the children’s unfolding development and play. This Fall, families will have the opportunity to participate in their own Class Pages* which are unique to their child's individual classes.

RIE® Online Parent Guidance classes


By popular request, we've added a new online offering to our schedule. For parents and caregivers outside of the New York area or those who prefer to learn about RIE without their child present, Online Parent Guidance meet weekly in small groups to discuss all things parenting and caregiving in The First Year. Bring your questions, triumphs, challenges ... all discussion topics are welcome as we explore raising infants and toddlers with RIE's respectful approach. Class Pages* included.

*Class Pages are an online space unique to each individual class. They allow for information sharing as well as ongoing communication with facilitators and other class families.
