Welcome! This is where families and educators can find information, inspiration, resources and training to get you Growing Gratitude at home or in your Education setting.
This is where we change the world together.
...is to nurture children’s spirituality by harnessing the super power of gratitude to help kids see, make and celebrate connection, and so raise a generation who know how to live wisely and well, with self, others and Earth.
In a world driven by fast-paced change and uncertainty, it's our kids' spirituality that will keep them grounded. It's through their spirituality that they will know their connection to people and places, to the present and the past, to their power and their purpose. It's this deep sense of connection that also guides our kids to contentment, compassion and courage.
And that is what our children, and our planet, need now more than ever before.
Growing Gratitude workshops and resource packs show you how to nurture children's spirituality by starting with gratitude. Because gratitude is the way we learn to see, make and celebrate connection - the foundation for all spirituality.
We know that many Early Years educators feel ill-equipped and under-resourced when it comes to nurturing young children's spirituality. Spirituality is woven through the early years curriculum, but many educators report that they have received little training in how to support children's spiritual development, or even what they should be aiming for.
In a Growing Gratitude workshop, you'll learn how connection lies at the very heart of our children's spirituality, and how it is that gratitude helps kids see, make and celebrate connection.
"I feel spirituality is something really important for our children, but I don't know where to start."
Growing Gratitude workshops take away the confusion and uncertainty by giving you a clear working definition of spirituality, that will underpin and inspire your teaching.
