St. Francis After School Program

St Francis Mindfulness for Kids After-School Program

Parent testimonials (from similar Mindful World programs):

“I was worried my child would be resistant and defiant about this program, but I was thrilled to see just the opposite!! He was eager to return each day, appeared to make some friends and get along with the other kids, and actually seemed very noticeably ‘calmer than usual’ for at least half an hour after pickup each day. Wow! You guys obviously managed to create a true atmosphere of ‘loving kindness’, which is perhaps a stark contrast to the crazy chaotic whirlwind of distractions, yelling, and general craziness that encompass a typical day in our ‘real world’. I look forward to attempting to create more of this calmness and kindness in our daily lives, using your guidelines.”

“We love this program! Our daughter has attended for 2 years in a row, and each time she comes home with new ways to help her calm down in the difficult moments. She has fewer meltdowns now, and often reminds my husband and I to be more mindful and taught us how to focus on our breath when we get stressed out.”

“My daughter really enjoyed the connection she made with you and the other kids. She practices mindful breathing and uses the yoga sequence on in her own. She also uses the practices to help her get to sleep at night, which has been very helpful – for her and for us!” 

“I was nervous that [my child] wouldn’t want to go. He is often nervous to try new things on his own. However, I shouldn’t have worried. He felt so comfortable. He just loved it. He is a sensitive child and blossoms when he is in a supportive and loving environment that encourages peace. Thank you so much, Anique. We will see you next year!”

Child Testimonials:

“Mindfulness helps me calm down. I think everyone should try it. It makes you better at being nice to other people and yourself.” – Ava, 9 years old

“The other day my brother broke my toy, and for a second I wanted to hit him, but then I remembered the mindful breathing and I did that instead. And after I was glad I didn’t hit him, because it feels better when you don’t hit.” – Joey, 8 years old

“Mindfulness feels like I’m floating on a peaceful cloud. It makes me calm and happy.” – Lily, 7 years old
