HeartSmarts Adventure Leaders Guide

Blended Learning

HeartSmarts Adventure is a 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 go at their own pace.

The program is structured around six thematic adventures or units of instruction.

  • Adventure 2: Healthy Heart Habits
  • Adventure 3: Investigating Emotions
  • Adventure 4: Emotions and the Heart
  • Adventure 5: Getting Unstuck
  • Adventure 6: Sending Love and Care

Within each adventure is an easy-to-use menu of 5 types of activity to deepen the learning experience: Videos, Activities, Art & Music, Kids Talk and What Do You Know (an assessment).

HeartSmarts Adventure

Based Upon an Earlier Evidence-Based Program

In HeartSmarts Adventure, many of the core ideas and techniques came from an earlier evidence-based program called Early HeartSmarts®. The effectiveness of this boxed-kit curriculum was documented in a 2012 peer-reviewed study named "Efficacy of an Emotion Self-regulation Program for Promoting Development in Preschool Children," Bradley RT, et al, Global Advances in Health and Medicine, 2012.

Here’s What Parents and Educators are Saying…

“HeartSmart Adventures is AWESOME! The kids love it. We love how interactive and fun it is! Another huge bonus is the retention the kids maintained. Later in the day after the morning lesson, they continued to share facts about the heart without being prompted. After the first adventure, connections were already being made about different speeds of the heart and how to slow it down. Kindergartners could identify relaxed heart, happy heart, excited heart. It was amazing to be part of.”

Julie Jowett-Lee, School Social Worker, Yale Public Schools, Michigan

“I contributed my expertise to the HeartSmart’s Adventure program because I think it is so important that we educate young children on the importance of healthy heart habits. These habits will last a lifetime and establish a baseline of wellness. Health creation begins when we teach children to care for their body, mind and spirit.”

Mimi Guarneri, MD, FACC, ABOIM

“I have gotten through all six Adventures with a lovely 4 year old. What a joy to do this work! She loved it and her Grandmother has told me she has used Heart Focused Breathing a few times on her own. The program is terrific!”

Barbara Styers, Retired Professor of Early Childhood Education

What Teachers are Saying

HeartSmarts Adventure Classroom License (30 Users) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really fun program! A really great way to keep a group of little ones engaged, active, and excited about making healthier choices and better decisions! Just make sure to leave space on the dance floor for yourself too, those songs are super catchy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging content. Important content! Kids growing up in this world need this content and more importantly, need to get parental and teacher reinforcement (example) that it's good to lead with your heart. It's good to be kind and show care. It's good to practice these behaviors at school and home. This program helped our children see these values and it was good reminder to us as parents to show by example.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, engaging and potentially life-changing I only wish HeartSmarts Adventure had been around when I was a kid! It's hard to imagine a more inviting way to learn about your emotions and how to live a happier life in this hectic world. Beautifully animated, colorful, and just plain fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way for kids to learn how to express emotion My two granddaughters were so excited to play the games. They especially liked the breathing Energy into the heart and dancing. In this fast paced world you can’t start learning these heart based skills too early.
