Mindfulness

  • In a time when mental health services among children are on the rise, Educational Enterprises proudly supports Mindfulness programs in Education

  • Research supports what we as educators already know; children can’t learn when they are stressed or distracted. Yet, nearly one in three adolescents will suffer from some type of anxiety disorder by the age of 18. With this growing concern, mindfulness is being embraced by educators to help address the “whole” child, including their emotional needs so that students will be more available to learn.

    Exciting neuroscience research shows that mindful practice actually rewires the brains to support learning.  The statistics speak for themselves:
