Circle of Security Parenting™ Program (Ballarat/ Sunshine) - early matters

A free, 8-week program to help parents/carers, in specific areas of Ballarat and Sunshine, to support and strengthen secure parent-child relationships.

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.

This course teaches parents and carers to:

  • understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read their emotional needs
  • support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • enhance the development of your child’s self esteem
  • honour your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure.

Who can attend?

Parents and carers of children newborn to 6 years who live in Ballarat and specific areas of Sunshine (Delahey and Kings Park).

The early matters program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
