What We Do

We focus on activating development rather than compensating for problems.

We provide professional development programs that prioritise social and emotional development in the early years. We advocate for this work to be undertaken in relationship with a caring and attuned adult, and we believe that this work can be done early and easily.

What we do

Connection leads to cooperation, learning and development

We provide easy to learn and ‘hold in mind’ practices to activate development through creating and enhancing purposeful connections with children. Without purposeful connection, children will not be interested in what we have to offer!

Our programs focus on the unique influence a secure relational model has on a child’s development, and the natural opportunities that are presented in everyday moments to activate development, rather than compensate for problems.

Our work is informed by an evidence-based Framework that works towards four key developmental domains:

  • Emotional Literacy and Regulation
  • Social Awareness and Relationships
  • Confidence, Sense of Self and Self Worth (the internal working model)
  • Positive Mental Health (mental agility, resilience, and an ability to cope).
