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.
