Pre-K Through 12th-Grade Programs
The Physiology of Learning and Performance
The supplemental online and classroom learning programs available below are based on HeartMath’s research into the physiology of learning and performance.
This research was incorporated in the development of evidence-based tools and methods that enable students to better recognize and self-regulate stressful emotions and overcome blocks to learning.
The tools are easy to teach and simple to learn. They can be adapted to virtually any culture and age group.
The Sunshine Secret® (Pre-K – 1st Grade)
The Sunshine Secret interactive e-learning program is scientifically validated and designed for today’s computer and pad-based educational environments.
It engages young learners’ minds and attention with a variety interactive support activities and is suitable for a few students or a large classroom. Sunshine Secret teaches children to recognize, express and self-regulate their emotions and behavior with a delightful story and characters, fun songs and activities that build a solid emotional foundation, healthy relationships and self-esteem.
Scientific research shows the life skills the Sunshine Secret teaches are essential for achieving success in school, work and life. Key among these is self-control, a skill that is central to effective decision-making and leadership as children go through adolescence.
HeartSmarts® Adventure (Pre-K – 1st Grade+)
HeartSmarts Adventure is a comprehensive blended learning program that combines a leader’s guide for teacher or parent-led instruction with a fully developed online learning program in which children can move forward at their own pace.
Trauma informed and based on the earlier evidence-based Early HeartSmarts program, HeartSmarts Adventure presents a new and engaging way to teach children how the heart works and new habits for keeping it healthy and strong. Along the way, children will learn about their emotions, how to manage them and the expression of compassion for themselves and others.
As they move through the six artfully crafted Adventures, children will enjoy completing more than 60 absorbing activities. At the heart of the program are three special self-regulation techniques that help children learn to take charge of how they think, feel and act. When the last Adventure is over, children will possess important life-affirming knowledge and skills that will serve them throughout their childhood and into adulthood.
