This is an extraordinary curriculum, at once practical and visionary. The lessons are thoughtfully and meticulously scaffolded as the children are guided step-by-step into an understanding of how their brains work, how to interact with the world with kindness, and how to master themselves. In this age of anxiety, what could be more important or valuable than to teach children at an early age how to interpret and navigate their big emotions, calm themselves, and by extension, each other? A must read for early education teachers everywhere.

The Peace of Mind Core Curriculum for Early Childhood - second edition
The second edition of the Peace of Mind Core Curriculum for Early Childhood is here: a mindfulness-based social and emotional learning program designed to help young children self-regulate, strengthen social skills and increase self-esteem. 32 step-by-step, fully scripted (though scripts are optional) weekly lessons help you reinforce skills all year so that you are helping children develop toolboxes they can use not just in your classroom but in life.
This new second edition reflects what we have learned since our first edition came out in 2016. New lessons and revised structure respond directly to the current pandemic-related needs of young children with trauma-informed approaches, more mindfulness practices to help manage big emotions, and a new unit on “Feeling Good About Myself.”
