MINDFULNESS FOR EDUCATORS & CHILDREN

Early Bird Discount code available for Victoria in January, please use the following code: MINDFUL

An increasing number of children face challenges that affect their ability to focus attention, regulate difficult emotions, build inner resilience, and form healthy and supportive relationships.

Learning effective ways to help calm childrens’ anxiety while providing them with supportive relationships, nurturing experiences, and positive learning environments is more important than ever. Mindfulness, described as the practice of ‘being in the moment and being present and open to what you’re focusing on’, has been found to reduce anxiety and improve concentration, productivity and sleep.

This 2-day course, presented by Anne Love in conjunction with Early Life Foundations will focus on how to establish your own practice and how effectively to introduce age appropriate mindfulness and meditations practices into your classroom. Practices will include simple meditations, movement, activities, games & discussion.

Anne has taught mindfulness and meditation in many primary schools working with each year level as well as with teachers and parents. She is a certified Mindful Schools Teacher, certified Meditation and MBSR teacher and is a registered with Australian Meditation Association. She has a Master of Education and Bachelor of HRM.

Research clearly shows that mindfulness practices have many benefits for children and teachers. Benefits of mindfulness for children include:

  • Focus and concentration
  • Calm and wellbeing
  • Sleep
  • Emotional regulation
  • Self-awareness
  • Empathy
  • Resilience

Suitable for all educators who work with children – Early Childhood and Primary.
