"Hello, my name is Miss Taylor and I am North Borough's Thrive and Thrive Family Practitioner. I have been working at North Borough for 10 years now. When I first joined the school, I supported children in the classroom as a teaching assistant. I quickly developed an interest in children's understanding of emotions and the theory behind how social skills develop. To develop my knowledge and skills further in this area, I undertook the Nurture Practitioner course and ran Nurture interventions with a high level of success. I have since gone on to become a Thrive Practitioner to support both children and their parents in the thrive approach."



Thrive - What is it?

From the moment a child is born, they will progress through a range of age-related developmental blocks. Sometimes, for many different reasons, some of the skills the children develop within these blocks may be missed. Imagine development like a completed Jenga structure, If a block is not in the structure correctly, it can make the structure wobbly.  

The Thrive approach supports the social and emotional well-being of children, enabling them to engage with life and learning. 

Based on established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach provides training and an online profiling and action-planning tool to equip adults with the knowledge, insights and resources needed to develop the relationships that help children and young people to flourish and learn.

Every other term, Miss Taylor runs a six-week parent workshop to teach parents all about the Thrive approach. This course is open to all our parents, not just those of children participating in the intervention. Parents learn strategies to support their children at home.
