Why we are working together for a brighter future!

Our program introduces mindfulness to the Early Years and helps make BIG feelings child size. Many people feel that young children are naturally happy, content and mindful, especially in their play, so why do we need to teach them what they appear to already know?

The truth is, if we could pause time and bottle this moment we probably wouldn’t need to but with the nature of todays society, as we grow older our lives become more rushed and structured, we are exposed to more and more stimuli and we can become less able to tune in to our senses and manage our inner thoughts and feelings.

The modern world of stress!

As wonderful as our world of modern technology is, if we don’t look after our brains it can lead us to become overstimulated and overwhelmed, releasing adrenaline and cortisol into the brain which is our body’s ‘fight or flight’ response. In children this is often when they ‘scream and run’, it’s their body’s way of saying “this is too much and I don’t feel safe.”

What our families say

  • My husband and I attended the "me and my mindful family" course last week. We both came out saying how engaging and knowledgeable Jodie was. She was very easy to relate to and listen to. We came away with a good reminder of the importance to practice mindfulness in our family and it's benefits. Looking forward to attending the shine to school course next week.

  • I have been taking my 4 year old and 1 year old to Jodie’s class this term and they are both really enjoying the sessions. It’s a great way of encouraging the older one to talk about how she feels as we prepare for school in September while also having fun. Jodie is really welcoming and friendly and has given me lots of useful tips about parenting.
