Staff Professional Development Day: Introduce Mindful Meditation into the Learning or Support Environment

This session is aimed at empowering professionals with the knowledge of the profound benefits of teaching children Mindfulness and Meditation, giving children the tools to use in the learning and support environment.

Bring the science and benefits behind Movement, Mindfulness and Meditation into the learning environment. Calming Minds have developed an experience-based programme, covering focus areas in the Child Protection Curriculum and aligning with the Australian Curriculum’s Health and Physical Education strand and The Early Years Learning Framework (Links here). 

Proven by current evidence based research material, mindfulness and meditation supports the overall wellbeing our everybody, and through participating in our programme, children can experience the benefits of quietening and calming their minds while regulating their own emotions, to improve their ability to retain and recall information, improve concentration and learn to redirect mind chatter from a negative to a positive mindset to support good mental health – the greatest life tools we can give them!

Our staff present this programme and how to embed these techniques into your learning or support environment.
