"Since an initial telephone conversation with Helen, where I was introduced to RIE, I feel that I have embarked upon a new and exciting learning journey. Each step has brought something new to my attention, something to improve my skills for working with children and build a better foundation to understanding and responding to children's needs more calmly. The RIE workshop was amazing and brought home to me the positive effects of slowing down, of respecting children and of listening carefully.

As a direct result of the RIE workshop, we have ditched our family rules and now have only four that we agree will help to shape a positive family culture; 1) No blame, no shame; to help us to be more positive with each other. 2) Play; to help us to have fun and humour together. 3) Respect; to help us develop mutual respect and understanding, we are a diverse group! 4) Listen; to help us to pay our full attention to each other. A quote from Magda Gerber was shared during the workshop; "How we care for our children is how we express our love."

I have begun to adapt my practices to incorporate the RIE philosophy and am eager to work with colleagues who share the same values so that we can develop a super team together and create a truly wonderful experience for the children who attend."
