Improving Mindfulness in Children

Mindfulness impacts social and academic achievement

In this video, learn how mindfulness is essential to early childhood development of academic and social skills, and how it can be improved through activities in the classroom.

Mindfulness is a way of thinking that promotes moment-to-moment attention to yourself and the environment.

Mindfulness is regulated by a cognitive process called Executive Function (EF), and helps children understand and regulate their own emotions so that they can better react to what’s going on around them. Learning reflection and mindfullness at an early age gives children the best opportunities to be school-ready and navigate new cognitive, social and emotional demands.
