Creating the next generation of confident, thriving children

Hello and welcome!

I’m Annabel, the founder and director of Thriving Minds Education.

I believe that every child deserves to get all the support they need to thrive. 

Just like a house cannot be built on a shaky foundation, my vision is to give every child the support and tools they need to build a solid foundation in their early years so that they can be confident, resilient and mentally healthy.

I understand and appreciate that every child is unique and deserves to be celebrated for who they are.

Thriving Minds Education is SUCH a great shop! I'm an early childhood teacher and a parent of two young children and it's great to have found somewhere where I can shop for resources that support evidence-based practice. The range is so diverse and covers so many bases too. So many cool open-ended resources that stimulate lots of oportunities for play, language,social skills etc. And Perth based too, love shopping local!
