Parents in Secure Beginnings classes often feel a sense of relief when joining in the company of other adults. The simple truth is: we are not meant to parent alone. In this time of social distancing, let’s take a deep collective breath together.

Conversations with Carol

Conversations every other week with our Parent Consultant Carol Castanon for caregivers of children ages 0-5. Drop in as you can, or attend all three classes.

Family Sing-Along

Singing, signing, moving, and dancing together bring pleasure, connection, and learning. Songs can also be used to mark important transitions in your child’s day such as hellos and good-byes, waiting, missing, wishing, and sleeping time. Drop in as you can, or attend all three classes.


Restorative Time

Enjoy a brief guided mindfulness time, as well as time to share with and listen to other parents. Drop in as you can, or attend all six classes.

“Each meeting with Carol and the other caregivers
was uplifting and boosted my confidence as a parent.
My experiences were validated and I now feel
better equipped to handle the unique stress of these times.”
