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
We take a mindful, child-centered approach…
Our speciality is training you to work from an intuitive, child-centered approach. Our approach is practical and tailored to meet the needs of all young people – including those with or without trauma, care-experienced, SEN, Autism and ADHD.
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.
