The Sunshine Secret

The fun way children learn about their emotions (for kids ages 3-6)

Sunshine Secret is a highly interactive program that uses technology to engage children on multiple levels to teach them how to recognize, self-regulate and control their emotions.

Every parent and teacher knows that young children love to engage all of their senses no matter what they are doing. HeartMath took that into account in developing the new Sunshine Secret e-Learning Program for children ages 3-6.

Kids Learn Social-Emotional Skills

So Easy to Use…

Sunshine Secret is child friendly, so once an adult logs in, even young children can easily navigate the program themselves.

As children travel through the story of Gloria the glowworm and Leon the Chameleon’s delightful world, they can complete support activities specifically designed to achieve positive emotional outcomes.

The Sunshine Secret

Among these are putting together virtual puzzles, coloring exercises with the Sunshine Secret story’s characters and learning emotion vocabulary words.

Hours of Learning and High Re-usability…

Children love practicing the easy-to-learn Heart Shine self-regulation tool. It teaches them how to replace negative emotions such anger or hurt with positive ones like understanding, compassion and hope. Heart Shine is a wonderful way for children to learn that relying on their natural uplifting qualities of the heart can guide them through any situation.

Other interactive activities include:

  • Identifying and matching emotion faces of children to emotion faces of Leon and Gloria.
  • Promoting positive attitudes and feelings with the Appreciation Board.
  • Singing along with three wonderful songs to reinforce key program concepts and skills.
  • Animated videos with fun, age-appropriate science content, including a frog’s life cycle, the sun and more.
  • Heart-Breathing Pacer, practice a self-guided technique while using a simple tool that helps regulate their breathing.

The Sunshine Secret is an investment in your child’s EQ.

A lot has been written about the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ), and it undoubtedly makes a difference in a child’s connection to their teachers, mentors, and peers as they journey through their eductional track. The Sunshine Secret acquaints children with the importance of their emotional toolkit and how they can use it. It also helps ease and elevate the interactions with their siblings and parents, too!

What Teachers are Saying

Sunshine Secret Classroom License (1-30 Students) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I purchased this game for my granddaughter whom I only see on occasion. I set up a profile for her but despite our best efforts, she is yet to be able to log into the game. I managed to log her in once on my computer at home, but after that one time, the login message reverts to the constant "Invalid login" notification. I have sent 2 emails since the 24th of July requesting support but have not heard a word from anyone, not even an automated message indicating my email had been received. I am seeing my granddaughter again tomorrow but since I have not heard from anyone, I am going to have to tell her again that she can't play her game on her device. I have been delaying writing a review in the hope that we could actually play the game in order to be able to provide one but I am now hoping that this might generate some response from you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Teaching transforming emotions I work with preschool age children and teach mindfulness to them. The Sunshine Secret tool for transforming emotions is perfect for 3 and 4 year olds who are experiencing sadness due to missing their mommy and daddy. The children respond really well to the language I used that I got from the video. My 5 year old son watched the video and enjoyed playing the games. I was surprised when he asked to play again. He also really adored the song and wanted me to buy it on iTunes. I was really happy with how the Heart Shine method was taught through story. He responded better to this than me chattering away at him about how to send love to others. My only hope is that HeartMath continue to make more video and games geared towards preschool age children. There is one HM tool, the Heart Shine, and I was really hoping for more. I’m grateful for this one tool though. It’s working wonders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sunshine Secret I enjoyed sharing the video with my 6 year old granddaughter who was enthralled by the animation and activities. The message was so appropriate for her and I was happy to present her with healthy alternatives

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sunshine Secret This book is a wonderful addition to the children's reading library. I can't think of a better organisation to set out this information for children. I wish I had found it year's ago.
