Kids In Connection supports children to build confidence in themselves, value who they are and build connections with others.
In today's world we are seeing escalating rates of anxiety, depression, disconnect and a rise in behavioural and other conditions increasingly present in the childhood years. Children today are growing up in a fast changing world and they need support to navigate their way. To be able to do this they need to know who they are and feel confident in themselves. This requires parents, teachers and the community coming together to nurture, raise and support the development of children.
Kids In Connection recognises that each child first and foremost needs to be connected to, listened to, encouraged and appreciated so that they have a strong sense of self, value who they are and know the quality of supportive relationships.
