Childhood Rising was founded in 2022 with the mission to support and unite parents, carers, educators and other professionals journeying alongside children with one shared intention – to raise childhood wellbeing.
We celebrate diversity and draw from strengths-based approaches to working. We draw on the evidence-based and trauma informed approach to caregiving called Aware Parenting.
As a certified Aware Parenting Instructor, we advocate for safe and connected relationships, non-punitive discipline, the therapeutic value of play and ways that children can heal from stress and trauma.
We advocate for the power of reflective practice, we encourage and challenge our clients to deeply reflect on their on parenting, practice, growth and difficulties and support them to find empowered confidence, strength and motivation in their daily lives alongside children.
We believe in the inherent wholeness, competence and contribution children have to offer to this world, and believe the same to be true about the adults we work with too.
