Five to Thrive is an approach to support the children’s workforce to develop the skills and knowledge to work with families. Through the training practitioners learn the skills to build parental capacity by increasing their understanding of the emotional development of their baby. The approach is built upon the emerging evidence about neuro-science and baby’s brain development. It is a systemic approach to early intervention and positive parenting. It identifies the key parental activities contributing to brain development and promotes confident, reflective parenting. It enables practitioners to teach and model mindful interactions.
