Alex is a certified Postpartum Doula and is a registered Circle of Security Parenting and Classroom Approach facilitator. She recently became a certified Motherhood Studies Practitioner and is currently training as a Holistic Sleep Coach. In 2021, Alex started Precious Beginnings, a 10-week postpartum and parenting program, with over 200 parents completing the course.
Alex believes that nurturing tamariki in their early childhood experiences profoundly shapes the foundational aspects of their growth and development. Whether collaborating with kaiako or engaging with whānau, Alex highlights the significance of offering tamariki attuned, respectful, and responsive care.
As a kaiako, you understand the impact that a supportive and nurturing environment has on tamariki growth and well-being. The Circle of Security Classroom Approach is a programme dedicated to enhancing your skills and fostering meaningful relationships between kaiako, tamariki, and their whānau.
The Circle of Security Classroom Approach is an engaging programme that equips kaiako with essential insights and practical strategies to create secure and loving relationships between tamariki and their caregivers.
This research-based programme draws from attachment theory and emphasises the importance of emotional connection in shaping a child’s development.
