The early years are a magical time when curiosity and creativity blend into learning and discovery. And yet families and educators face unprecedented pressures to remove the very pillars that make children feel safe, joyful, confident, and competent. The result? Both children and adults find themselves feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and overstimulated.
The Power of Presence: A Guide to Mindfulness Practices in Early Childhood is written for today’s educators who feel pressured by unrealistic demands, are overwhelmed by the daily chaos of early childhood teaching, and seek to find peace in their classrooms.
A more peaceful, present learning environment will help children to reclaim their safe, joyful, confident, and competent approach to learning. The adults in the children’s lives, whether families or educators, will also thrive in this mindful approach with more patience, focus, and confidence. Together, they’ll be able to breathe in blue skies and reach new heights of learning.
