Cultivating Healthy Intentional Mindful Educators (CHIME)

CHIME Program Logo

The CHIME Program provides education and guidance on how to incorporate mindfulness and reflective practice into your daily routine, teaching and caregiving. Engaging in mindfulness and reflective practice has many benefits for health and well-being of both providers and young children — including reduced stress, improved emotion management, better sleep quality, increased focus and attention, and enhanced relationships.

The CHIME program consists of a 2 hour introduction followed by 7 weekly CHIME sessions. These sessions are:

  • Mindfulness in Breathing
  • Mindfulness in Listening
  • Mindfulness and Emotions
  • Mindfulness in Speech
  • Mindfulness and Gratitude
  • Mindfulness and Compassion
  • Setting Intentions

Participants that complete the full program (8 sessions) will earn up to 16 DHHS approved in-service hours.
