Mindfulness for Schools

Our founder, Danica Toh, who conducts the Mindful Schools curriculum, has experience working with young souls from local and international schools since 2006. Her work with children and youths very often wraps around instilling life values, character building and motivation of young individuals to empower them towards their goals in life.

We have adopted our mindfulness for schools programme from the Mindful Schools curriculum, where our good intentions are to help integrate mindfulness into education for students, teachers, and staff in the school community.

Mindfulness curriculum for:

  • 4 to 6 years old (Kindness curriculum)

  • 7 to 11 years old

  • 12 to 14 years old

  • 15 to 19 years old

Students:

Students are often faced with high levels of stress from the demands of academics and social pressure. There is a lot of weight on the shoulders of a student today.

Introducing mindfulness to students and young individuals can help them learn more about themselves in terms of attentional focus, working with difficult emotions, building inner resilience, identifying and learning to manage anxiety, worry, and stress.

Educators:

Bringing up a child at home is never easy, and having to help parents bring up their children is a lot more responsibility. While it is important to feel centered when one steps into the classroom full of students, having to engage them and be part of a support system to help each child learn and grow, it is not possible unless there is support available. 

 

Many educators are burning out and experiencing a lack of support in their holistic health and well-being. Providing support to educators in learning and practicing mindfulness, and also integrating it into teaching and the classroom can offer the support needed by educators in their teaching journey.

Living in a world where 'Toxic Stress' is real:

"Toxic stress occurs when life’s demands consistently outpace our ability to cope with those demands." - Mindful Schools

While healthy stress is necessary to keep us, children and adults, at bay in being motivated to have the drive to do the things that we have passion for, it is often displaced by toxic stress.

When stressful demands outweigh the ability for us to cope with them, the physiological system of the body taps into natural survival instincts of 'fight, flight or freeze' . During this state, a stimulus (e.g. a test), usually acting as a trigger may invite a response in the body (e.g. cold sweat, immobility, loss of peripheral vision, nausea, shivering). Encounters as such or other traumatic experiences may become chronic or habitual for children and even adults.
