All Our Programs Include:
We begin the day outside with a mindfulness activity and self-directed fine-motor skill activities. Children are welcomed in a large group activity and then divided into small groups so that we can provide more individualized attention. Group activities may include singing, dance, and music and are used to emphasize a sense of connection to community. We focus on helping the children find their emotional center as they set intentions for their day.
We believe one of the joys in life is sharing food with friends and family. Each day children participate in making mealtime a meaningful experience. We learn about nutrition, where foods come from, and take time to educate children on culinary basics as they prepare wholesome and delicious food to share “family style” with their friends. We emphasize the “Art of Etiquette” during the meal as we teach children the importance of manners and respectful living.
Life and Intentions
At the close of each day, we encourage children to reflect on their day and invite them to set an intention for the present moment. We ask that children focus on one gratitude they have about their life and one affirmation about themselves. Much of life is created through setting positive intentions. We support children by helping them follow through with the concepts that are important to them. We create a space to support an effortless transition to their next activity.
“My Heart” Activities
These activities at Mindful Heart Kids are designed to celebrate the beauty of childhood. We work with children to provide creative, interesting and challenging activities that help them fully express who they are. Encouraging children to connect to their hearts desire promotes self-awareness, confidence and social consciousness.
“My Body” Activities
These activities at Mindful Heart Kids are created to help children focus on the importance of their body and how to develop better self-care. We participate in yoga, mindfulness meditation, and other types of body-centered activities to help promote active living, emotional expression through movement, and physical self -awareness.
“My Mind” Activities
These activities at Mindful Heart Kids inspire children to think deeply about the world and themselves. We support the wonderful curiosity of children by providing activities that help them translate their thoughts into meaningful activities. Each week there is a theme that we work with to encourage them to think more globally.
