Education & Schools FAQs
+ How can we organise for Smiling Mind to come to our school?
We love coming to schools and introducing our programs to educators, staff, parents and students. We have a variety of programs available to schools including the free app, an introduction to Mindfulness, six-week courses for educators, train the trainer and a whole school implementation. Please send an email to email@example.com outlining which program you are interested in and we will call you to discuss the process.
+ Do you have a program for children under 7?
At the moment we do not have this program, however we are working towards this. The 7-9 year old program is also great for younger children to use.
+ How often should you use the app in the classroom and what are the best times to use?
It is a great thing to be meditating every day, but if this is not possible, an understanding of mindfulness meditation can be used in many situations. The app is a tool to gain experience and knowledge of mindfulness meditation. We suggest setting time aside either before class starts, after lunch or just before the school bell goes. There is no right or wrong time to use the app.
+ Are you able to come to schools in WA, QLD, SA, NSW, TAS?
Yes! We have staff in most states. If not, we can travel.
+ Can you please send me the program overview?
Sure, please send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
+ I'm overseas, can I use the Education Program at my school?
Yes! However our Education Program is mapped to the Australian curriculum. You can still download our age specific lesson plans to support the educator's understanding around mindfulness and meditation in the classroom, and you can use the Classroom meditations from the phone or web app.
+ What is the Workplace Program made up of?
Our Workplace program is designed and delivered by psychologists trained in mindfulness and performance in a flexible way. This could be face-to-face or online, and either short term or over a preferred time period. We also offer a range of programs from general workplace culture to specific workshops on mindful leadership and its application to your business. Please refer to the Workplace Program on our website, or contact us.
+ What sort of support do you give workplaces running the program?
We support each staff member with email and help desk support and a targeted comms strategy. We also work with the organisation to develop other ways to support the group as they experience our program. This may include regular meditation sessions, reminders and tool kits to get them engaged with their mindfulness practice.
+ Does my workplace have to do all the workshops and buy the app?
We recommend that you run the workshop series and also subscribe to the app. This means that your staff will get a solid understanding of mindfulness and meditation through the workshops, which are supplemented with exercises and meditations on the app. As you know, it is important to ensure staff members start practising the skills they learn to build their mindfulness muscle, and this program is specifically designed to ensure they develop a regular practise. This is the only way to develop a new way of operating and contributing to a cultural shift, where looking after our mental wellbeing is valued and encouraged. You can choose to run one or more workshops or you can choose to just purchase the app. The program is flexible, so you can pick and choose elements to suit your budget and needs.
