Five to Thrive

Just as our child’s body grows better when you give them good food, your child’s brain grows better when you do five simple things that feed the growing brain:

Respond ● Cuddle ● Relax ● Play ● Talk

Parent feedback from a programme run July 2019

  • ”Everyone was really great- the facilitators knew what they were doing, great handouts and a wonderful experience- much needed. Brilliant. I would 120% recommend because it’s really helpful- the way it’s planned out is really good, it helps you learn more about your child and their abilities”
  • ”Great support- gives you more confidence and you see things differently.”
  • ”I feel very confident and positive now,  I feel proud of what I am doing, I feel in control. It’s having a positive impact overall- kids are happier and feel more loved, have a settled routine etc. They are more considerate, calm, content. They are being listened to.”
