Thrive Practitioner: Mrs Shambrook

The THRIVE Approach.

What is THRIVE?

Thrive supports children with their emotional health, wellbeing and social skills, all of which are needed to enable learning to take place. Children cannot always put their needs into words, but the way children behave can tell us a lot about how they are feeling. The Thrive Practitioner works to build safe, strong relationships with children, using creative and sometimes messy play to explore their sensations and emotions. This will often include exploring alongside children having no expectations or outcomes for activities, the children are developing language, linking the language to body sensation to emotion and allowing children to communicate through play.
