MindUP’s signature program is an acclaimed classroom-based curriculum, spanning ages 3 to 14.

Published by Scholastic, this 15-lesson series is based on four pillars: neuroscience, social-emotional learning (SEL), positive psychology and mindful awareness. These lessons work together to build awareness and self-regulation that increases a child’s academic performance, self-control, empathy, and optimism.

“I created MindUP because I was compelled to help all children learn the tools and knowledge they need to thrive, live compassionately, and be happy. We want every teacher in every school to be trained in MindUP, and we want every home to experience the peace and joy that MindUP brings.”Goldie Hawn, Founder of MindUP

It has been amazing to have parents come to us and ask about mindful breathing as children have gone home and told their parents about ‘the breath’. When this work transfers into home lives it becomes even more important.Deputy HeadWest Rise Infant SchoolEastbourne, UK
