RIE-Inspired Playgroup
This 4-session course provides a safe space for toddlers to engage in self-directed free play under the guidance of a teacher/facilitator while parents sit quietly and observe. (If a voice inside your head is asking why on earth such a simple-sounding thing is being offered as a *class*, ask yourself when the last time was that you watched your children play for an hour without a)intervening; b)helping to manage conflicts; or c)doing some kind of multitasking, be it housework or texting. Been a while? Yeah, join the club. You are invited to experience the power of quiet, sustained observation of young children as they navigate materials and peer relationships with minimal interference from adults.)

This class is suitable for parents already utilizing RIE practices as well as for parents for whom this is a new approach.

This class meets for four consecutive Tuesdays from 10-11:30 starting March 22nd.
