RIE’s Founder

Magda Gerber

Magda Gerber founded RIE® in 1978

“The infant Magda showed us is so much more; she showed us that a baby is a miracle, a whole person, who, with our deeply attentive care, unfolds into a wonder, unique in the world. She taught us to wait, to watch without preconception, to observe with genuine curiosity, to see what the baby was trying to tell us. She gave us new eyes through which to see, not the infant we have in mind, but the actual infant before us, and to respond quietly, gently, slowly to its cues and initiations, and to respond not only to its needs but its competencies as well.” — RuthAnne Hammond, M.A., and Deborah Greenwald, M.A., RIE® Associates
