RIE® Certified Parent-Infant Guidance classes encourage babies to be attentive, active, exploring and aware of self and others. Designed to encourage children to become authentic and responsible from an early age, Parent-Infant Guidance classes help parents to be confident in their supportive role towards this great discovery.
Facilitated by a RIE Associate, small groups of parents come together to discuss development, ask questions, and share insights. Classes are designed to support the way adults learn, which is through repetition over time. Learning new behaviors takes practice and the facilitator utilizes different tools such as video clips, observations and articles to encourage self-reflection and growth.
RIE has two RIE-Certified Locations in the Los Angeles area, one in Hollywood and one in Pasadena.
Our Hollywood location is in the heart of the city near the corner of Melrose and Highland. There is a large indoor class area, as well as a patio for outdoor play when the weather is nice. The address is:
6720 Melrose Avenue, 2nd floor
Los Angeles CA 90038
The Pasadena location is on a beautiful tree-lined street on Green Street just east of Lake. It has high ceilings and wonderful natural light that create a warm and inviting space for parents and children. The address is:
975 E. Green Street, Suite A
Pasadena CA 91106
Both online and in-person groups are ongoing and designed to remain together until the children are around two-years-old.
Although the classes are designed to last until the children are about two-years-old, we bill on a monthly basis. While most families find the classes to be helpful and informative and therefore stay until the two-year-mark, families are free to stop classes at any time at the end of a cycle.
Each month has between 4-5 classes (depending on holidays and how many weeks are in a month). Online classes are $180.00 per month and in person classes are $195.00.
