The Inner Wellbeing of Children
We have led seven pilot courses in contemplative education and life skills for 3rd grade students at the Marion Cross School in Norwich, VT, worked with middle school and lower school students at Crossroads Academy in Lyme, NH and Pawtucket School in Massachusetts. These have inspired and informed the contemplative education curriculum shared in our afterschool lab and programs for adults. Join our mailing list to learn of opportunities to bring our contemplative education work to your learning community.
Creative Lives Afterschool Programs (CLASP)
Creative Lives After School Programs use a lab site approach to apply Ellen Tadd’s “Framework for Wise Education” -- a new, holistic approach to teaching and learning that integrates character development, physical activity, enrichment opportunities and academic support. The Creative Lives Afterschool Programs are our primary lab for curriculum development.
With one program at White River Elementary in White River Junction, and another underway at Barre City Elementary and Middle School in Barre, Vermont, we serve school communities where the free and reduced lunch rate is between 52 and 72%. Visit our Programs Pages to learn more!
Our creative team is developing supporting materials for classrooms, including posters, affirmation cards, and musical selections. To support this work, you can purchase the following items right here on the website!
