Thrive is a specific way of working with all children that helps them to develop their social and emotional well being, enabling them to engage in life and learning. It supports them in becoming more self assured, capable and adaptable.


Positive relationships are at the heart of Thrive. We use these relationships, together with play and creative activities to give children key experiences at each different stage of their development, helping them to:

  • Feel good about themselves and know that they matter.
  • Increase their sense of security and trust.
  • Increase their emotional wellbeing.
  • Improve their capacity to be creative and curious.
  • Increase their self esteem and confidence to learn.
  • Learn to regulate and recognise their feelings.
  • Learn to think before behaving in a certain way.

Thrive also helps us understand the children’s needs being signalled by their behaviour, enabling us to give them the support they need to get back on track.
