CIRCLE OF SECURITY

A program for parents to focus on their relationship with their child from birth to 6 years

At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Circle of Security assists parents and caregivers to:

  • Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to ‘read’ their needs
  • Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of their child’s self esteem
  • Honour the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure.

Course Dates 

Term 3 Thursdays 7pm – 9.30pm from 6 August (8 weeks) $50

Term 4 Thursdays 10am – 12.30pm from 22 October (8 weeks) $50
