We believe our community is built on the relationships we build within our homes. We believe in taking a holistic view of the ways in which we bring our children into the world and raise them. We are inherent supporters of birth choices and woman-centred maternity care. We believe in parenting that is based on the concepts of love and logic, that which teaches children to be in charge of the choices they make and to guide them accordingly with respect and empathy. We believe there are ways to help babies and children sleep well, without working outside the parenting philosophy. The family unit was meant to be a sacred thing, something that was set apart to create sanctuary from the world, a chance to learn how to maintain healthy relationships and a predictable platform to launch from, when the time is right. We are passionate about focusing on positive foundations such as emotional well-being, to help create sustainable, happy homes that provide our children with both roots and wings.
