Mindfulness is a simple technique that emphasizes paying attention to the present moment in an accepting, nonjudgmental manner. As we reflect upon Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years and the foundation of well-being, it speaks to lifelong learning habits. Habits formed early in life will inform behaviours in adulthood, and with mindfulness, we have the opportunity to give our children the habit of being peaceful, kind, and accepting. At each developmental stage, mindfulness can be a useful tool for decreasing anxiety and promoting happiness. When we teach mindfulness to children, we equip them with tools to build self-esteem, confidence, manage stress, and skillfully approach challenges. The earlier we do so in their young lives, the greater the opportunity to help them cultivate resilience and develop and refine their mindfulness practice as they mature. This session will offer resources and experiences that will highlight the benefits of mindfulness and enhance your curriculum for children of all ages.
