- [00:00:10.110]Hi, my name is Jackie
- [00:00:11.700]and I'm part of the Nebraska Extension Early Childhood Team.
- [00:00:15.210]Welcome to the CHIME program,
- [00:00:16.920]cultivating healthy, intentional, mindful educators.
- [00:00:20.790]CHIME is a mindfulness program
- [00:00:22.650]for early childhood educators,
- [00:00:24.660]including teachers, home visitors, and other staff
- [00:00:28.320]who care for and teach young children.
- [00:00:30.780]CHIME uses Dr. Amy Saltzman's definition of mindfulness.
- [00:00:34.867]"Mindfulness is practice of paying attention here and now
- [00:00:39.030]with kindness and curiosity
- [00:00:41.160]so we can change our behavior."
- [00:00:43.620]During the eight-week program,
- [00:00:45.180]our team works with early childhood educators
- [00:00:47.640]to support their wellbeing
- [00:00:49.320]and offer strategies to promote mindfulness and compassion,
- [00:00:52.710]both for themselves and the children in their care.
- [00:00:55.890]Participants learn about different aspects
- [00:00:58.350]of mindfulness, compassion, and social-emotional learning
- [00:01:02.820]and practice mindfulness in their community,
- [00:01:05.760]which may include other teachers, children, and families.
- [00:01:10.740]We are excited for you to join us
- [00:01:12.960]in learning about mindfulness and compassion practices
- [00:01:15.960]to support your child's social-emotional health.
- [00:01:19.050]Each week during the CHIME program,
- [00:01:21.090]you'll have a chance to learn simple mindfulness activities
- [00:01:24.150]you can do with your child to help them grow
- [00:01:26.730]and strengthen their social-emotional skills.
- [00:01:29.250]We are excited for you to learn these practices
- [00:01:32.160]and we hope you enjoy learning about mindfulness
- [00:01:34.560]alongside your child and their teachers.
