New dates for Tweddle's Circle Of Security Program

Tweddle's Circle of Security Parenting Program helps parents to understand and to tune into the emotional needs of babies and toddlers. The group program is supportive and helps to strengthen parent-child attachment which research tells us will help a child's social, emotional and physical outcomes for life.


Tweddle Announce Infant Mental Health Awareness Week 2017  

Infant Mental Health Awareness Week 2017 promotes the importance of attachment and responsive, sensitive caregiving for infants during the antenatal period. The World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH) recently released a position paper on the rights of infants to highlight the unique needs of babies and toddlers to those of older children.

This is due to the critical window of development that takes place in the first 1000 days where 80% of a child's brain is developed. Relationships are crucial to babies during this period and are the building blocks for good mental health in childhood and throughout life. As part of Infant Mental Health Awareness Week Tweddle are announcing two events that will explore the importance of Infant Mental Health and its impact on relationships, family, the workplace and the community.
