HELPING TO SUPPORT, EMPOWER AND EDUCATE PARENTS, CARERS AND PROFESSIONALS

Secure Foundations CHILDREN DON’T COME WITH A MANUAL Secure Foundations

At Secure Foundations, we believe that your children are the manual. Which is why we teach evidence-based strategies to help you understand your unique child and meet them where they are at developmentally, so that you can parent with confidence.

Secure Foundations

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower, support and educate those looking after children to parent instinctively with care and compassion so that we can raise generations that don’t need to heal from their childhood.

Having worked for many years with vulnerable children and their families Secure Foundations founder, Sarah Bolitho, is passionate about building secure foundations for children and their families. She firmly believes that creating a secure attachment in the early years is an emotional advantage that will last a lifetime. Secure Foundations offers education and support to parents, carers and professionals relating to challenging behaviours, infant and child sleep struggles, positive behaviour support, child development, childhood trauma and attachment focused parenting.

Secure Foundations believe that each family is unique, and all recommendations are individualised and tailored to meet the goals of you and your family. You can be sure that we will not recommend anything that compromises your maternal instincts and will meet your little one at their point of need. We look forward to working with you and especially welcome partnerships working with those who are caring for children with a trauma history.

We know that the early years is an important foundational period of child development. It shapes their development, relationships and emotional well-being which is why Sarah is so passionate about supporting those caring for children in the 0-5 age range. Sleep and behaviour is often affected by developmental, environmental and relational factors which form the basis of the holistic support Secure Foundations provides.
