Babies need intimacy and connection to thrive.

Why Early Experiences Matter

per-i-gee:

the point in the orbit of the moon or a satellite at which it is nearest to the Earth.


The name “Perigee” evokes secure attachment behavior in the young child, who moves in an “orbit” around a primary caregiver and can safely enjoy both the warmth of intimacy, and the joy of independent discovery and exploration within a healthy relationship.
