Nurturing the strengths, character and values of children and their families.
We value the decades of research in Positive Psychology. In particular the work of Dr Martin E.P. Seligman and Christopher Peterson in Virtues and Character Strengths. This research gives our program the evidence, awareness and understanding around laying the foundations within our program. For more information of some of this research visit www.viacharacter.org
The Kids in Harmony program uses special messages each week to promote and reflect values education and to help recognise the strengths and opportunities that exist within our lives and the lives of our children.
We hope participants find our handouts inspirational, informative and educational, and we are conscious not to overload or bombard our families with written information. Instead we aim for moderation and simplicity in the messages we offer children and their families.
Values awareness permeates every part of the Kids in Harmony program through the many songs, yoga play and creative activities.
At Kids in Harmony we have been inspired by many ways of promoting values, virtues/character strengths, thinking skills, choices, and building character. We love to learn and continue to stay open, flexible, and enthusiastic about learning. We attend workshops regularly and are proud of the choices we make in staying updated with research and motivated to continue to do what we value.
If we could survive only together, we can be human only together, what a glorious world would come into being if all of us lived harmoniously.
