The Connected Kids™ Program
The Connected Kids™ programme was founded by Lorraine E Murray, an international meditation trainer with many years of teaching experience and a specialist in teaching meditation to kids with Specialist Educational Needs. I found my training with the Connected Kids™ programme has changed my teaching of children and young people for the better and also improved my parenting style. Therefore I undertook to become a Connected Kids™ trainer in order to teach the programme. I look forward to sharing how I integrate the training into my everyday teaching and parenting with you.
Foundation level training details
There are two Zoom/Google Meet sessions where you will be able to interact with us and other trainees. Google Meet is like Zoom. You do not need a Google account to attend. Both sessions last approximately 3 hours. There will be a break during the sessions. Access to a printer is needed for the online course as we will send out the resources via email.
This course trains you to teach mindfulness and meditation skills to the children and young people in your family or those with whom you work. Group sizes are strictly limited so early booking is recommended in order to avoid disappointment.
It is also the first step if you wish to train to become an accredited, certified professional teacher of meditation for kids. See further details below in the Career Progression Section.
