Mindfulness and Well-being in Nurseries

In today's fast-paced world, promoting the well-being and mental health of young children is of utmost importance. Recognizing this need, nurseries are increasingly integrating mindfulness practices into their early years curriculum, aligning with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. In this blog post, we will explore the significant trend of incorporating mindfulness and well-being in nurseries, examining its benefits and how it complements the EYFS curriculum. Why is mindfulness important to incorporate:

  • Nurturing Social-Emotional Development

  • Building Concentration and Focus

  • Developing Mind-Body Connection

  • Fostering Resilience and Coping Strategies

  • Supporting Positive Relationships

Mindfulness practices can be adapted and tailored to suit the age and developmental stage of children. Here are a few examples of mindfulness practices that Peekaboo incorporates:

Mindful Breathing

We teach children to focus on their breath as a way to calm their minds and bodies. Encouraging them to take slow, deep breaths.

Mindful Eating

Mindful Movement

Mindful Listening

Mindful Art

Mindful Storytelling

The inclusion of mindfulness and well-being practices in nurseries is a transformative trend that has gained significant recognition in early childhood education, it empowers young children to thrive in all aspects of their lives. As we continue to embrace mindfulness in Peekaboo, we are paving the way for a generation that possesses the tools to navigate challenges, cultivate inner peace, and lead fulfilling lives.
