Nurtured Heart


The Nurtured Heart Approach® is followed throughout the school and is a more than just a way of parenting or creating strategies for behaviour management. Created by Howard Glasser in 1992, the Nurture Heart Approach® (NHA) is now being successfully introduced to families, classrooms, foster care, health care professionals, social workers and criminal justice organizations that are seeking successful, early intervention and manageable techniques.


NHA embraces 3 stands which are the core means of transforming children.

  • Stand One: Absolutely No!
    I refuse to energize negative behaviour (Don’t energize the tantrums or unwanted behaviours- like taking the batteries out)
  • Stand Two: Absolutely Yes!
    I will relentlessly energize the positive. (Creating relationships that build respect and love between you and your child, allowing “time in” instead of “time out”.
  • Stand Three: Absolutely Clear!
    I will maintain total clarity about rules that demonstrate fair & consistent boundaries. (Creating realistic limits which will produce amazing transformations)


The strategies that are given through NHA assist children in further developing their self-regulation and has been found effective with children of all ages. Its main focus is to transform the way the child perceives themselves, their caregivers and the world around them. The child will experience and understand that they will receive endless amounts of praise, energy, recognition and reward through the positive behaviour they display and this supports the child to build a positive portfolio of themselves, which is called “inner wealth”.


If you would like more information on this or anything else to do with the nurture team, then please don’t hesitate to speak to Alison or Hannah.


It is the aim of the nurture team to provide informal sessions about the Nurtured Heart Approach® in the near future.

 If this is of interest to you, please let the nurture team know.
