Every child needs to feel valued, involved and appreciated.

We know more now than ever before about what helps to develop healthy curious minds and happy, confident and creative children.

If children have been emotionally thrown off track, either temporarily or over longer periods, Thrive helps us understand the needs being signalled by their behaviour and gives us targeted strategies and activities to help them re-engage.

More on the Thrive Approach

Thrive-Online has been developed to help us better understand children’s behaviour and what it signals about their emotional development.

Through online tools, training and mentoring, we support you in learning about the emotional and social development relevant to a child’s age. We also help you to understand a child’s challenging or troubling behaviour as communication.

Every child gets a personal plan; you get simple, practical ideas about how to be and and what to do to implement the plan, and you can easily monitor the results.
