About the program

Circle of Security is a free parenting program, designed to help parents to understand their child’s behaviour and to build and strengthen a secure relationship with their child.

Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure.

Benefits of this program

• Ways to enhance the development of your child's self-esteem, trust and sense of security.
• Supporting the creation of a secure base from which your child feels able to explore their world, knowing there is a safe haven to return to.
• Strategies to build confidence as a parent so that you can enjoy parenting and take on new challenges along the way.

Parents of children aged 0-5 years, residing in the north east of Melbourne are very welcome to participate.
