Enroll now in a small group (up to 6-8 families) for infants and toddlers and their parents. Classes are located in in the St. Louis, Missouri area. These classes are inspired by RIE®, Magda Gerber's Educaring® Approach.

Prior to the start of class a home visit is provided at no charge. A home visit allows you to learn more about classes, for you and your child to get to know your child development specialist, and for your child development specialist to get to know you. 

You will also be enrolled in your Friends of RIE® Network upon enrollment. This gives you an opportunity to connect with other families and professionals that believe children need to be cared for with respect and begin to expand you village.

Being part of RISE Groups means access to a private community group, support from a early childhood specialist, and educational resources that support you where you are on your journey through parenthood.

One Hour Parent-Child Classes
You may enroll you and your infant or toddler for one of our classes for a semester at a time. Partial enrollment is not an option at this time. We understand that life happens and classes are missed. Because of the special needs of our infants and the importance of relationships, we can not allow our families to enroll for partial sessions and do not have options for make-ups. We do know that paying for the semester upfront is not always possible, therefore we do offer parents to pay month to month with the understanding that the entire semester is owed whether or not you choose to attend.
