Nurturing & Attachment

A child's early experiences of being nurtured and bonded with a caregiver are critical to development.  Attachment and bonding start in the womb and continue throughout childhood. Research shows that consistent nurturing is a biological requirement.  Studies have shown that children who have received affection and nurturing from their caregiver from the start are more likely to have a healthy development.  They are also more likely to get better grades, have healthier behaviors, and positive social relationships, as well as be better able to cope with stress later in life.

  • All children have secure and nurturing families
