Kid planning out his week

The Thrive Initiative Sprout program is now available online!

Sprout is designed for parents of 3- to 5-year-olds and includes six everyday moments: Morning Routine, Bedtime Routine, Shopping, Play Date, Rainy Day, and Dinnertime. During these sessions, you are invited into the homes of families to experience their everyday moments, to see things from the parent’s point of view and child’s point of view, and to learn practical strategies that support growth and connection. By participating in the Sprout program, you are building your parenting skills and helping your family THRIVE!
