Our Unique teaching resources are based on Mindfulness and Meditation. There are huge benefits to using these techniques in the classroom and our belief is that all children should have access to these as part of their daily routine. This would benefit physical, mental and emotional health, concentration, alertness, learning and provide children with tools that will benefit them throughout their life.
"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”
