About Strong Foundations

Strong Foundations is based on results from a survey we conducted of over 500 parents about their experiences during the pandemic. We were struck by two things in particular from our analysis of the survey. First, parents who felt they had a strong support system fared much better than parents who felt they were alone in facing the challenges of quarantine and homeschooling. Second, parents’ own mental health was tightly wound with their children’s well-being. 

We know as researchers that the effectiveness of any type of program or intervention is compounded when it takes the entire family system into account.

Therefore, we want to support, not just the child, but the entire family system. We integrate virtual play-based sessions for children with psychological support for parents through group therapy sessions, and 1:1 consultations with psychologists. There are programs popping up that aim to address the pressing need for childcare, but none that take this holistic approach to supporting families.
