Family Thrive for Parents and Carers
Family Thrive is an opportunity for parents and carers that introduces the fundamentals of the Thrive approach and how it works in practice.
There will be a six-week course to introduce you to the fundamentals of Thrive and how it works in practice. Please join us on this course to find out about:
- the Thrive Approach
- how our brains develop
- how your right brain talks to your left brain!
- why play and creativity are so important to you and your child
- how to support your child at times of change and difficulty
- every day trigger times and how to keep calm
- how to be a behaviour detective.
Thrive sessions will explore the amazing growth of a child’s brain throughout childhood and help support their emotional development.
This session will be structured yet informal and will allow time to interact with other parents and carers, ask questions and have input into what would be most useful for future sessions.
This course is run by a Thrive approved course leader who is also an experienced Thrive practitioner.
The course will run for six sessions starting on Tuesday 5th October 2021 from 13.15 to 15.15 pm.

Future courses this academic year
Working with Save the Children and The Educational People we will be offering Families Supporting Families which is an 8-week program that shares different ways in which children learn. It is a platform where parents can share their own experiences and learn from each other.
Further information will be shared when dates and times are confirmed.
Families Connect focuses on supporting parents and children to learn together. It helps parents to support their children’s learning in three key areas:
- Social and Emotional Development
- Literacy and Language DevelopmentNumeracy
The eight-week programme provides a series of activities, techniques and games that parents and carers can do with their children at home. Each activity encourages parents and children to spend quality time together by talking about specific topics and reflecting on what they already do to support their children’s learning. Parents also discuss the science behind the programme’s activities.
These informal workshops invite parents to explore new games and approaches that might help them to support their child’s learning at home.
Dates and times to be confirmed.
