RIE – Basic Principles

Excerpt taken from

Respect is the basis of the Educaring® Approach.

  • Goal: an Authentic Child – one who feels secure, autonomous, competent, and connected
  • Trust in the infant’s (child’s) competence
  • Sensitive Observation – to understand the infant’s communications and his needs
  • A safe, challenging, predictable environment – where the child can best do all the things that the child would do naturally
  • Time for uninterrupted play
  • Consistency
