The Culture of the Heart is a child-led scheme of work that gently and creatively helps children connect with their own and shared values, whilst building healthy mental, emotional and relational habits.

The content has been designed around leading neuroscience, psychology and EQ, integrating coaching and therapeutic techniques that empower children to connect to their own thoughts and beliefs to help create values centred classrooms. Teachers who have used the content have seen significant behavioural change in their classrooms, in the playground and parents have commented on the difference of their children at home.   

The lesson plans are inclusive and easily adaptable for all age groups and abilities. It incorporates relational, emotional and social learning with academic and creative disciplines, resulting in independent thinking and team work. The foundation year offers seven cultures (or themes), exploring a new culture every six weeks.
