For Educators

We provide professional development and self-care strategies via adult Brain Breaks, trainings and webinars. We also offer ongoing support for our partner districts and organizations. Continuing ed unit opportunities available.

For Students

We provide a range of free classroom resources that include learner Brain Breaks, health & wellness curricula, and Virtual PE. Our mission is to promote social, emotional, and academic development for all learners.

Start with the Heart: PreK-2

In this interactive session, PreK-2 educators will have access to Start with the Heart Curriculum and learn practical implementation strategies to embed SEL, breath, movement, and rest into the PreK-2 classroom.

Culture of Care, 4-Day Series July

Delaware Department of Education, in collaboration with Pure Edge, Inc., will host a four-part Culture of Care institute for educators and leaders. The Culture of Care training prepares educators to deliver breathing, mindful movement, and relaxation exercises in the classroom and to train colleagues to do the same. Participants in the training will learn and be able to communicate how this approach promotes social-emotional learning (SEL) in the classroom. In this virtual setting, each session includes a self-care practice for participants and time for Q&A and practical implementation strategies. The sessions are highly interactive and participants will practice teaching the exercises with colleagues. Participants will become familiar with the Pure Edge online resource library to support establishing a Culture of Care at their school site.

Using Our Online Resources to Implement with Students

How do I access the online resources? Where do I need to go to get the Brain Breaks that we just learned? How can I bring what I just learned into the schedule of the school day with my students, whether virtually or when we return to in-person classes? Let’s answer these questions and more to help the ongoing transitions happening at your school, district, and community-at-large. There will be 20-25 minutes of short user-friendly content and a 10-15 minute Q&A.
