Instilling the process of adapting well in the face of adversity in order to “bounce back” from difficult experiences. 


An environment that gives our children the courage to believe in themselves in order to improve self-esteem and self-confidence through discovering their strengths and adopting strategies to face challenges in their lives. 


Developing friends that are kind, and that act as a positive influence in their lives. 


Discovering and embracing the unique qualities and gifts that distinguish each individual from others. 


Mindfulness is achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feeling, thoughts, and bodily sensations
