If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” – Dalai Lama.
Thrive4Kids offers mindfulness programming and playgroup for children and teens! We are committed to supporting mindfulness development in children and teens because we know that healthier, spirited youth make happier, wholesome adults. Thrive4Kids implements a variety of mindfulness-based curricula to encourage creativity, social-emotional learning, and confidence in each student. We encourage the development self awareness, body management, and interpersonal skills that are beneficial in navigating and coping with life’s inevitable stressors. We are grateful to welcome our community’s youth to the studio to be immersed in a conscious, nourishing environment.
How Does it work?
Thrive4Kids evolved from our weekly kids mindfulness classes; we realized that we could help Crested Butte children and teens, AND support parents by broadening our offerings. Our variety of formats include multiple age ranges and the programming for each group is tailored to fit its developmental stage and interests. The ratio of children to adults is very small and though we are not a daycare, we are following similar guidelines so that the kids are safe. Thrive4Kids is a drop-in format therefore we do not require a long-term commitment. As long as the spots are available, you can sign up for as little or as many days as you need.
