Parenting Courses and Workshops

We know that parenting can sometimes be challenging! That’s why we offer a range of courses and workshops to help support mums, dads and guardians through various stages of their children’s lives. Our facilitators are genuine, caring professionals, who love to see families thrive. We work across various regions of Adelaide, both from our Family Zone Ingle Farm hub and also in partnership with local organisations or community centres. If you are interested in partnering with us to bring a course or workshop to your local community, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you! Our Family Zone hub at Ingle Farm provides a range of groups and services for families. Learn more about them and see their full term calendar here.

Our courses

At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you?

The Circle of Security Parenting Program is an eight-week based program based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Using the COS-P model, developed by the Circle of Security originators, our trained facilitators work with parents and care-givers to help them to:

  • Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
  • Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of their child’s self-esteem
  • Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure

We offer courses in the baby and toddler years, primary years, intermediate years and tweens/teenage years.

Each course consists of six two-hour sessions each week. All parents receive a manual to take home and a certificate of completion. The sessions are interactive and encourage group discussion.

This is an excellent workshop to support parents to make positive changes in their family life. Each week parents take home strategies and practice tools that support and connect family. Some of the topics covered are:

  • The Foundation of Love
  • Parents (including looking after yourself)
  • Stronger, Deeper, Closer
  • Heart-Led Parenting
  • Loving Discipline
  • Putting it all together

This two-hour workshop has been developed to relieve some of the questions parents may have and to ensure a smooth transition to the school environment. Some of the topics include:

  • The parents’ role in the child’s learning
  • Tips for getting to school on time
  • Emotionally preparing their child and themselves for this transition
  • Lunch box options and the importance of sleep and breakfast

This two-hour interactive workshop is designed to support parents and families’ understanding of the effects of too much screen time on children and the impact on families.

The topics in this workshop cover:

  • The impact that screen time has on families
  • The characteristics of a balanced family in our digital world
  • How to develop healthy family boundaries
  • An understanding of the safe use of social media
"Since attending Circle of Security our relationships with our children have been strengthened and we feel better equipped as parents to support our kids."
