Empowering a holistic approach to learning

Healthy minds, strong bodies, happy children

Our goal is to empower preschool educators throughout Australia to become confident movement and mindfulness leaders, enabling a more holistic approach to early years education.

After completing our NESA approved program, your educators will have the confidence, knowledge and motivation to deliver an impactful, age-appropriate daily movement and mindfulness program to all of your centre's children.

By integrating our movement and mindfulness program alongside your educational curriculum, your preschool centre will be able to demonstrate a clear holistic approach to learning, while your children will excel in the calm, caring environment that is created.

"Integrating A Mindful Start Preschool  program into our centre has helped our children express themselves and self regulate, and provided our educators with a deeper understanding of children and their needs with age appropriate strategies."

- Simone Brand, Director of Sprout ELC, Terrigal


The benefits of our program

A Mindful Start Preschool Program aims to create a generation of

healthy minds, strong bodies and happy children.


It is linked to all five of the Learning Outcomes from the Early Years Learning Framework and helps educators to facilitate a truly holistic approach to teaching and learning, recognising the connectedness of mind, body and spirit and the physical, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of each child.


For your centre

As well as nurturing calm, confident and happy children, your preschool will become a leader in providing a holistic approach to learning, while creating a calm, caring environment in which your children will excel.

For your educators

Your educators will learn about their own minds and bodies while gaining new knowledge and expertise, and will be confident and passionate about delivering age-appropriate movement and mindfulness sessions.

For your families

Parents will be amazed and excited by the results they see at home, as their children learn the tools to build healthy minds and strong bodies that are ready to tackle the challenges they face at every stage of their lives.

What our preschools say...

"Working with A Mindful Start has undoubtedly drawn attention to our centre. We now have our very own in-house movement and mindfulness leaders, equipped to provide a quality and child specific program. We recommend this to to every childcare centre looking to provide a high quality experience for children in their care."
