Our Chilled Children programme provides Teachers with a wide range of teaching resources to help children to deal with Mental and Emotional difficulties and provide them with tools for the future. This programme uses Visualisation, Meditation and Imagination techniques. Using these techniques the programme works on a very subtle, but deep level to provide Mental and Emotional wellbeing and improve Behaviour, Concentration and Learning.
The Programme covers focus and attention, improved learning and information recall, behavioural difficulties, confidence and self esteem, loneliness and more, and best of all, each individual element takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete, so doesn’t take up valuable teaching time.
"This resource is a must for teachers who, from time to time, may need a quick 'pick me up' or 'calm down' session that will promote learning readiness but not take up a busy timetable. Chilled Children Visualisation is vital for those schools with limited resources or those teachers stretched for preparation time. This is a no fuss simple resource, easy to use, follow and build into a hectic school day.”
“I used Chilled Children before SATS sessions last May. The children responded well and achieved a good level of concentration before each test. I noticed the class were calm and composed, alert and positive in their approach to the test”
