The NurtureCalm education programme

The NurtureCalm programme takes the knowledge and understanding of child development and psychology that makes CalmFamily so impactful and develops a practical approach to nurturing. Our NurtureCalm consultants create a space of calm and connection infused with a deep understanding of families to optimise cognitive and physical development and build positive relationships.

Using the science of the human brain (neurology) and mind (psychology), we can teach a combination of modern and ancient practices passed within communities for generations before the changing of our societies. The best part is that we insist upon evidence and so base the practices we teach on scientifically sound research. and we don’t stop at 12 months. These nurturing practices can be developed and adapted as families grow and so we offer the full package, even nurturing other adults in our relationships.
