Guidance for parents and caregivers
that respects the needs of babies
and the adults around them,
allowing secure attachment relationships
and the best possible start in life.
My philosophy is inspired by the work of infant specialist Magda Gerber, who created the Educaring® Approach and founded Resources for Infant Educarers® (RIE®). I became a RIE® Associate in 2017 and have been studying with RIE® since 2010. I have been working with infants and older children as a nanny since 1999. I use my knowledge of the Educaring® Approach and years of experience working with children to serve families in the San Francisco Bay Area through nanny work and parent education.
What is Educaring®?
Excerpts from Dear Parent by Magda Gerber
THE BASIS OF THE EDUCARING® APPROACH: RESPECT
Respect is the basis of the Educaring® Approach.
We not only respect babies, we demonstrate our respect every time we interact with them. Respecting a child means treating even the youngest infant as a unique human being, not as an object.
