Every child is unique and deserves the best care possible.

At Vital Child we understand that children can provide us with our greatest joy and also our greatest frustrations. We also consider that:

  • All children are different
  • There will always be an exception to the rule
  • Children are capable of self-awareness in surprising ways
  • When given the right conditions for healing, children can be amazingly resilient
  • It is often more successful to include children in the mission, than to simply dictate the terms
  • Treating your own children is different to treating other people’s children
  • There is always something new to learn about children (and ourselves)
