The 3-5 Room

Five to Thrive:

What happens to a child, shapes their growing brain.

We are using the Five to Thrive approach throughout the nursery. We have been finding out about how young children’s brains develop and we will be sharing this with you. There are five key areas: respond, cuddle, relax, play and talk and these focus on what children need from the adult around them.


Paths stands for Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies. It helps build a child’s confidence and also gives your children an understanding of their feelings. We celebrate daily a Paths child of the day. PATHS is taught in a fun way using stories, puppets and activities.
