We are so proud to introduce Mindfulness as an essential tool at Valley Montessori Academy

 

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is present-moment awareness and understanding what is going on in and around you. Being mindful helps children to cope more easily with feelings such as: anger, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, peer conflicts etc. We will teach and encourage them to address these feelings with calm minds. Some of the examples of the mindfulness activities are breathing techniques, meditation, listening to poems, listening to silence, singing calming songs. All these activities will help redirect children’s behavior and avoid unnecessary conflicts. At our school we believe that your presence, your calm and your peace are the best and the biggest gift we can offer young people.
