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.

In addition to face-to-face training there is also the opportunity to take the course online.

There will be breaks off screen for the comfort of your eyes. Access to a printer is needed for the online course as I will send out the resources via email.
