What our Teachers have to say about Kind Mind...
...even parents absolutely loved Kind Mind.
"I love the beautiful and simple audio meditations for my 4 and 7-year-old. Provides us with an easy way to connect, calm our bodies and reset our day."
"I found Kind Mind's toolkit engaging and learned so many tips on how to relate to my children. Having compassion is something we tend to forget when it comes to our kids. I am excited to use these new techniques!"
"Kind Mind videos and materials are so relatable, easy to digest, and offer great strategies that we can simply use throughout the week."
"Kind Mind has been incredibly thoughtful and intentional in its approach to this work. They offer beautiful materials in collaboration with a local artist and have drawn effectively on the expertise of others to build a robust, heart-centered curriculum. Any school or family who adopts these materials, curriculum, and/or training will feel the care that went into it."
"This has been such a beautiful contribution to our school community. The materials are consistent, easy to roll out, offer the perfect space for kids to explore their feelings and themselves, and provide the teachers with the tools to hold that space. It's been such a win-win this year for all of us. Can't wait to continue our collaboration!"
"I have been implementing the Kind Mind curriculum in my Pre-K (4-5yr old) classroom for about 3 months. My students and I love the activities, lessons, and recorded audio. I find students checking in with how they feel more often, labeling them, and using strategies learned through Kind Mind to control strong emotions. I would highly recommend using the Kind Mind curriculum in your classroom!"
