Become a Certified Meditation Teacher and Transform Lives

20 years ago, Connected Kids pioneered the idea of teaching meditation to children and teens. 

We were convinced that young people needed to learn these skills sooner, rather than later.  We wanted to share our experience and knowledge with like-minded people who felt the same.

Since then the training programme has grown internationally teaching thousands of people who have become successful meditation teachers.

We’ve helped people, worldwide, transform their passion into a career of helping young people to reduce stress and anxiety and feel calmer, more confident and happier.

Our mission is to elevate people to have the skills, understanding, experience and confidence to help young people thrive:

  • build young people’s emotional intelligence
  • develop their resilience skills
  • help them tap into their innate sense of kindness and compassion

It has been a wonderful journey and I have learned so much along the way. It has really enhanced my play therapy tool kit and totally opened up my own journey.

Connected Kids is a unique programme for special people.  It’s more than a certificated course.  The Connected Kids team is dedicated to helping you with your future success as a meditation teacher and all the children you connect with – helping them reach their potential.

That’s why we channel our energy into continued support with tutorials, skills to promote your work and masterclasses – in addition to exclusive access to a thriving online community of like-minded people.

It’s a highly skilled course that takes you on a personal development journey.

Join the Connected Kids Accredited Programme

  • to develop the skills to customise a teaching meditation programme that meets their needs,
  • to keep kids and teens motivated by creating meditations they will love,
  • to connect to the experience and wisdom of our online community,  
  • to develop advanced skills that extend your work locally or worldwide!


Working with the tools has brought about a beautiful shift in how I work with children. Previously, I worked as a psychologist, working on an intellectual level with evidence-based strategies, attempting to ‘fix’ problems. 

My approach to working with children is completely different and much more effective. The course has equipped me with the skills to work on a deeper level with kids, tuning into their energy and underlying issues using simple and effective techniques.
