What is Circle of Security and is it right for you?

At times all parents and educators feel lost or without a clue about what our child/ren might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child/ren was really asking from you. The Circle of Security program is based on decades of research about how secure adult-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. The program has many benefits with the main one being building the adults confidence in understanding and guiding positive behaviours and children's overall sense of well being 

Learning Objectives of the Program: 

  • Understand children's emotional world by learning to read their emotional needs
  • Deepen your connection with your little people
  • Support children's ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of self esteem and well-being 
  • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure
When I first learnt about the Circle of Security as an educator over 10 years ago, it changed everything I understood about my role as an Early Childhood Professional and now being a mother, it has been my SAVING GRACE!
 Circle of Security unpacks the unique relationship you have with your child/ren, so you can better understand not only them but yourself as well as know what needs to change to nurture yours and your child's potential. 
I give you my word, that completing this course will literally change your whole perspective and make you feel as though you have a secret superpower that other people don’t know about. It is liberating, transformative and empowering, yet so easy to understand and apply to not only your relationships with children but with everyone in your world! 

PARENTS should consider this course if:

Common parenting advise doesn’t feel right 
You have an interest in attachment science and/or respectful, responsive, conscious or gentle parenting styles
You’ve often wondered what the right response to your child’s behaviour should be 
You are feeling a little lost on your own personal transition into parenthood 
You find yourself second guessing the way you communicate with your child
You've wondered how you can best support your child's early foundations of brain development 
You may hope you don’t make the same mistakes your parents may have made 
You strive to bring the best out in your parenting or teaching 
    You find yourself getting triggered by your child's behaviours 

    EARLY CHILDHOOD PROFESSIONALS should consider this course if:

    You find yourself getting triggered by classroom behaviours 
    Other behaviour guidance courses dont resonate with you 
    You want to learn about attachment science and relational practices 
    You are an educational leader wanting to enhance your own pedagogical knowledge 
    You are an educator who is passionate about quality practice and building high quality relationships with children 

    What does Circle of Security teach?

    Circle of Security provides a road map to read our children’s needs and how to respond to those needs with both responsiveness and respect 
    How relationships effect personality and overall brain development 
    How to tune into our own parenting or educating style and how this allows for loving attachments and what may be getting in the way at times 
    A map of how to approach parenting or educating from an attachment perspective without providing, rigid rules, routines or checklists.
      Tools to understand and make sense of your own triggers to help you respond to your child in the way you really want to 

      Why do I think it is so important?

      This course cuts through the jargon of advice and focus on what really matters 
      It takes a lot of the questioning out of what children actually need
      Provides Parents, Carers, Teachers the CONFIDENCE to know how they can respond to their children in a helpful way
      We don’t have to parent or educate the way its been done in the past. Often (but not always!) we may secretly or not so secretly hope to not raise our children the way we were raised, yet are unsure of how to break the cycle.
