I have been teaching a secular mindfulness program at Saddle River Day School in grades PreK to 5th grade since 2016. This program is a combination of the MindUP and Mindful Schools curriculums. It is a classroom-based social emotional learning program designed to help children self-regulate, increase focus, reduce stress and gain emotional resilience and optimism. Students learn strategies to calm their minds, focus their attention and become more aware of themselves, others and their environment. The lessons teach students about their brains and how they can positively influence their own brain development.
Please contact me if you are interested in a presentation for your school, parent organization or community program.
