Get together and play in the park. We'll be set up in the shaded, grassy area to the east of the playground. So far we've had babies ranging from 3 weeks to 12 months though most are in the 8-12 month range. Bring a picnic blanket if you have one and please join us!

In case you're not familiar with RIE, I recently came across this article by RIE educator, Janet Lansbury, on some of her thoughts about RIE playdates:

"Share… Wait Your Turn… Don’t Touch… Playdate Rules That Limit Learning (And What To Try Instead)"

Link to article:

A lot of these ideas don't always come naturally (at least not for me) and I thought this was a good reminder to some of the RIE approaches. I'm so grateful for this community for the ability to practice this approach!
