Helping Children Thrive at School: The Effectiveness of Nurture Groups
Sanders, Tracey
Educational Psychology in Practice, v23 n1 p45-61 Mar 2007
This paper describes a nurture group pilot project that took place in three schools in Hampshire. Results suggested that children in the nurture groups made significant social and emotional gains after attending a group. These gains were recognised by the children themselves and their parents. They were also generalised into the classroom. Teachers at the end of the pilot project felt more empowered to meet the needs of children presenting with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. This paper concludes by identifying factors which contribute to the success of nurture groups and highlights future research issues. (Contains 5 tables.)
