  COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE THRIVE APPROACH

 

 

Click on the links below to view some informative documents about child brain development and how best to support children when they are in times of distress or difficulty. We understand that the coming months may prove extremely challenging for many children and their families as the country starts its long recovery from the Covid-19 outbreak, with people coming out of lockdown and children returning to a school setting for the first time in months, and at Bosbury we are here to help and support our families during these unprecedented times.
