This virtual training course will provide you, as a senior or middle leader, with a strategic overview of the Thrive Approach. It will help you to consider how best to develop a whole-setting wellbeing programme while enhancing your team’s knowledge with the latest thinking around emotional resilience and engaging babies, toddlers, young children and children in their learning. It will explore how you can create a culture and environment that facilitate the wellbeing of both children and staff.
Understanding how the brain develops during the early years presents incredible opportunities to support babies, toddlers and young children as they grow. Grounded with insights from established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach enables your team to seize these opportunities and meet the social and emotional needs of all children, with no one slipping through the net.
Our Leading Emotionally Healthy Early Years Settings course will equip you with the strategic knowledge and understanding needed to support young children’s development and take a whole-setting approach to social and emotional wellbeing. The intensive virtual training sessions will introduce you to the Approach, give you a clear understanding of the Thrive child development model, and show you how to apply this to support age-appropriate social and emotional learning across your setting.
The sessions will demonstrate how Thrive-Online (TOL), our profiling and action-planning tool, can be used to identify where children are in their social and emotional development, and identify strategies and action plans that will meet their needs. Of particular importance are the monitoring and measuring features of Thrive-Online, which can be used to evaluate the impact of Thrive, while also helping you to target limited resources where they are needed most.
Our experienced course leaders will explore how you can strategically embed Thrive across your setting, building this into the everyday routines and structures. You will be provided with the support and resources needed to introduce Thrive to your team and implement a whole-setting approach to wellbeing.
The Leading Emotionally Healthy Early Years Settings course is ideal for managers, deputy managers and team leaders working in nurseries, pre-schools and play groups, plus those working in primary schools at Early Years Foundation Stage.
The course is highly recommended for settings new to Thrive as well as those looking for further guidance on embedding the Thrive Approach as a whole-setting programme for wellbeing.
