JCC Early Childhood Center
101 Garden of Eden Rd

Savor each moment with gratitude through mindfulness. Mindfulness is a research based concept that invites us to simply focus our attention completely on the sensory aspects of our experiences, fully present. This workshop takes attendees on a journey to explore how to incorporate mindfulness into activities and routines. And it defines the social emotional, and physical benefits of doing so not only for children but parents, caregivers and teachers as well.
