"The first three years are critical to the foundations of our life"

19th February 2023 | Blogs

How a little understanding of brain development can go a long way.

Throughout our life, experiences continually shape our brains and thanks to brain plasticity, we continue to learn, acquire new skills and form new memories.

There are many reasons why children’s behaviour may change as they grow, so having some knowledge of brain development can be useful for educators, to help understand why a child or young person may be behaving in a certain way.

Understanding neuroscience makes an impact.                        

Nursery Plus teacher, Sarah Roberts, reflects on how important the first three years of life are and how building positive relationships in early years settings is vital to a child's emotional development. 
We also hear from Lorna Macgougan from West Exe Nursery School who explains the impact Thrive training has had on her professionally. She said 

“It all makes so much sense and having all that lovely science to back everything up has been really inspiring.”
