Bee Happy Mindfulness - Koa Kids Co. created the Mindful Self-Regulation curricula for our kid-facing programs. This included the theoretical explanation behind the value of mindfulness and self-regulation practices, as well as a wide range of child-focused activities that staff can lead to help children and youth develop mindful self-regulation skills. In addition, they created a training module for us to use to train our staff. We have trained more than 1500 front-line staff using their curriculum and the feedback has been resoundingly positive. Their content is clear, dynamic, and really easy to apply and front-line staff find it remarkably memorable and helpful."

“The service of Koa Koaching is directly relevant to the Ontario Curriculum, specifically the social and emotional learning skills. The Koa Koaches taught all of the classes specific mindfulness-based activities to recognize emotions and to deal with “big” emotions. Due to the teaching of the Koa Koaches, many parents have remarked that their children are using breathing techniques at home. Several kindergarten students are creating their own breath work exercises (e.g., Pokemon breath) and are teaching their personalized versions to their classmates while they are playing “school”. The Koa Koaching program has had a positive impact overall to the school climate, and also fulfills SEL objectives that are embedded in the Ontario curriculum."

Bee Happy Mindfulness has consulted with the YMCA to create Mindful Moments Activity Cards to be used in our Before and After School Care programs. Bee Happy Mindfulness took considerable time to understand our specific challenges and needs as it relates to self-regulation and our childcare programs. They consulted with us to create easily accessible and informative activities to support our educators and children with mindful self-regulation. They ensured that the activities align with our curriculum, our vision, and our values. Bee Happy Mindfulness is professional, knowledgeable, customer-service driven, culturally and trauma-informed and dedicated to helping organizations and communities thrive."
