Because caregivers and childcare professionals have found these ideas and resources helpful, we want to make them readily available through this website.
There are two simple conditions for their use:
- The source of the materials should be acknowledged. That is: Providing a Secure Base, Gillian Schofield and Mary Beek, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK.
- The core elements of the Secure Base model (that is, the model itself and the cycles) should not be changed.
