Online Programming

Parents at Secure Beginnings often feel a sense of relief when arriving on the circle rug in the company of other adults. It’s not just that the Secure Beginnings room is beautiful, safe, and baby-appropriate. It is the simple truth that we are not meant to parent alone. In this time of social distancing, let’s take a deep collective breath together.

“[Secure Beginnings] has really helped me to be a better parent. I look forward to it every week and miss it during the breaks”

"This was such a safe place for us to learn and grow. We look forward to coming to our class every week. It was so helpful to see how the facilitators interacted, supported, encouraged and addressed our concerns and needs. For me (mom) this was the greatest place!!! Especially to just feel safe to let my child be himself and let me go and ask questions and feel supported. This has been so incredibly valuable to me and my family."

“I love coming to [Secure Beginnings] with my children. It has always been a wonderful place to spend time. We look forward to playgroup each week. A very special time to be with my kids in a quiet nurturing environment.”

“[Secure Beginnings] offers a safe space in a busy world for us to bond with our children. The facilitated sessions help us to see our young children for who they are and to love and embrace them in their developmental stages. Thank you for such a great gift!”
