YOU ARE DRIVEN
creative, compassionate and dedicated.
As educators and parents, we work tirelessly to ensure our children have a future far brighter than even they can imagine.
We plan, we instruct, we motivate. We nurture, we hope for the best and we deserve a gift.
This gift is based on the premise that when our kids have a sense of belonging and FEEL safe, connected and supported, our job to teach is remarkably easier.
Each lesson that Great Day provides brings balance into our homes and classrooms by empowering the mind and educating the heart. It is the sense of well-being that our kids deserve in order to perform at their best in every capacity of life.
GIFTING US WITH:
TIME to inspire
SPACE to enjoy our day
EASE to implement incredible lessons
RESILIENCE to thrive at what we love doing most!

THERE IS A SHIFT TAKING PLACE
- in our school system -
and I know you can feel it too!
It's time for an evolved form of education. It's time to celebrate what makes our schools outstanding, yet challenge our current methods. Let's dissolve the stress, burnout and violence that overshadows the exceptional aspects of our education system. Implementing a balance of heart intelligence and conscious intellect during our school day will create a foundation for every child to:
take responsibility for their future
value their education
have a greater appreciation for the world around them.
Making future generations smarter and more compassionate than ever before.
WHO IS THE GREAT DAY EXPERIENCE FOR?
The lessons and services for Great Day Academics are designed for
elementary and middle school-aged children.
The individuals who will profit the most from the Great Day experience are parents, students and teachers who recognize personal challenges and want change, but are uncertain where to start.
The change you wish to see in your children, in yourself and in the world, starts here!
Increases Cognitive Abilities
Mindfulness practices are essential for creating a balance between the use of your brain and heart. It is scientifically proven that children who habitually use these practices and learn mind - body awareness, reduce anxiety and increase cognitive abilities.
