MKM SERVICES FOR

KIDS

Peaceful Kids

Peaceful Kids is an eight-week Mindfulness and Positive Psychology program which aims to lessen anxiety and stress and increase resilience in children from Prep through to Year 12. The program helps children to build their emotional resilience so they are better equipped to deal with the day- to-day stresses that life brings them. Peaceful Kids was created by Georgina Manning who is the director of Wellbeing for Kids.

 

As a licenced facilitator of the program MKM has a wonderful opportunity to share something that I love and enjoy with others and to demonstrate the benefits of mindfulness and the positive impact on general mental health and wellbeing. The program operates during the Term at the Mfacts Studio in Hampton.

 

The program is offered in various aged group workshops and his held on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

Super 7- Transition to Year 7

Starting high school is usually a time filled with mixed emotions. Nervous excitement, the fear or challenge of the unknown are all part of the next step in children's learning journey.

 

Each January MKM hosts a half day workshop aimed at supporting future year 7 students transition into high school. 

 

The workshop discusses mindfulness strategies to support problem solving skills, resilience and over all positive mental health and wellbeing. Stay tuned for our next transition to year 7 workshop.  Follow up weekly workshops are held during Term 1.
