Circle of Security Parenting Program

Circle of Security Parenting Group - on Zoom

Do you ever wish your child came with an owner's manual? Have you ever felt overwhelmed, frustrated, or confused about how to manage your child’s behaviour or communication? Join our 8-week parenting/caregivers program and learn to recognize your child’s individual needs.

Circle of Security Parenting Group is an internationally recognized, evidence-based attachment parenting program to support parents/caregivers in obtaining a deeper understanding of themselves and their children. The 8-week curriculum provides parents/caregivers with a visual map of their child’s emotional needs. Based on decades of research, Circle of Security will teach you how to better understand your child's emotional needs, support their ability to successfully manage their emotions, and enhance the development of their self-esteem.

The Five Key Points of Circle of Security

  • Acknowledge your own expertise and wisdom.

  • Children do best in situations where they feel safe and emotionally connected.

  • Every child is different and will have their own unique needs.

  • Be consistent in your responses, this will help build the child's sense of security.

  • Reach out for support if you need it.

This program is open to all parents/caregivers of children between the ages of 6 months to 6 years of age. Participants must be able to commit to all 8 sessions. This is not a drop-in group.
