Course overview

Thrive in Early Years provides a ‘right-time’ approach to helping babies and very young children develop healthy, secure attachments and build emotional resilience. Current brain science shows the important role of those working with babies and young children in helping to regulate their emotions and how they deal with stress. The Thrive Approach has been developed so you can see and understand behaviour as communication. Thrive provides you with the knowledge, skills and tools to support healthy emotional and social development.
