Back to school. Back to the present moment.

Back to school -  Samantha Headshot

Teach the life-changing skill of mindfulness

We worked with kids and family mindfulness expert, Samantha Snowden, to create these free guided exercises for every age group — from kids to teens.

Use them to kick off the school day, during transitions, or for winding down at the end of class — and help make this year’s unique back-to-school experience a calmer, more focused time for your students.

Care for your students and yourself

Headspace Plus is free for all K-12 staff members in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. It’s our small way of giving back to those who give back to kids every day — especially during tough times like these.

Back to School - Andy Headshot

“It’s almost as though meditation was designed for kids.”

“They just ‘get it’ – there is this elasticity and freedom in their minds which allows them to be present in the moment and free from any external thoughts or pressures. By introducing meditation and mindfulness at an early age, not only can we build on this and help nurture their mind development, but we are also making meditation simple and accessible."

– Andy Puddicombe, Co-founder of Headspace

“Their participation and eagerness surpassed my expectations.”

"I am a teacher of students with learning differences in LAUSD. It was fascinating to see the engagement of my students; those who needed the most emotional support seemed to take to it like fish to water. Their participation and eagerness surpassed my expectations. I began to incorporate weekly meditations into our routines, and have continued ever since."

– Kerry, Middle School Teacher, LAUSD
