MindUP is an exceptionally effective teaching and learning tool. It is a social and emotional learning programme that has helped thousands of children and teachers in hundreds of classrooms and schools throughout the United States, Canada, and the UK.
Mills International Preschool is the first preschool to offer the MindUP curriculum in Hong Kong, and joins several leading ESF and international primary and secondary schools in providing this invaluable addition to general curriculum.
When children understand how the brain works – the basic mechanics of its structure, its chemical reactions and neural pathways, and how the brain reacts to stimuli – they in turn become capable of using their brains more effectively and creatively, which leads to a more optimistic outlook and greater resiliency.
MindUP provides a set of social, emotional, and self-regulatory strategies and skills developed for pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students to cultivate wellbeing and emotional balance.
The MindUP curriculum helps children:
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Improve concentration and academic performance
- Gain greater self-awareness
- Lessen peer-to-peer conflict (bullying)
- Develop greater empathy
- Resolve conflict without aggression
- Acquire a greater appreciation for views that differ from their own
- Secure happiness, optimism, and resiliency
University studies involving hundreds of educators in the United States and Canada confirm that consistent classroom use and fidelity to MindUP’s evidence-based tools and training create more optimistic classrooms, and foster more positive cultures in schools.
