Transforming Lives in 5 minutes a day.

Creating Calm, Focused, and Ready to Learn Children

Stress triggers the brain’s amygdala to fire, resulting in higher cortisol levels. Cortisol destroys memory cells in the hippocampus, impairing learning ability. Strengthening the brain’s prefrontal cortex improves problem solving, decision making, and emotional regulation, thereby enhancing learning ability.

Mindfulness studies have proven to:

  • Increase ability to focus
  • Improve concentration
  • Develop emotional regulation

PTK is short and simple, easily implemented into the classroom and adaptable throughout the whole day. The Present Time Kids Program was developed by our team members Heather Goodwin and Cheryl Hensley.

Foundations of Present Time Kids

“Present Time Kids begins each day in our second grade classroom with a unified goal: calm, focused, and ready to learn. It gives me consistent verbiage to pull from all day long to adjust behavior and focus so the five minutes truly become all day effect. I am a big fan of Present Time Kids!”
2nd Grade Teacher
“When you over hear 4th graders talk about the neuroplasticity of the brain, you know you have tapped into the right program… You can sense the clam and focus that comes over the class and to the attunement of listening. These are skills that help children’s learning and in their ability to manage and control their emotions”
Tom Day, HISD's Travis Principal
