The wonderful world of Educaring


I'm immersed in the world of Magda Gerber and RIE ®(Resources for Infant Educarers).

It's a nice place to be.

It gently challenges me to reflect, rethink and re imagine.  It opens my eyes open to a new way of viewing infants and toddlers, and the care we provide them in early childhood settings.  I'm excited by the possibilities.

There are generous, supportive and wise people in Magda world.  Folk like Janet Lansbury and Lisa Sunbury for example.

What have I been learning here?

Learning Motherhood & Sunflower Creative Arts

Clever Toddler Activities
Janet Lansbury
Janet Lansbury
Illuminating Childhood

Advocate for Infants

And the one thing I keep coming back to is this:


Could there be a more important reason to rethink, reflect and re-imagine our practices with infants and toddlers?

If there are young children in your world, come and join me in the land of Magda and RIE® .   Take your time.  Read.  Network.  Make connections.  Discuss.  Reflect.

It's a nice place to be.

Here are some good places to start:
