What are the benefits of the Calm Caterpillar Program? 
In short, this program improves kids’ behavior. Through implementing a “calm down corner” and introducing breathing techniques, along with other mindfulness practices, into your kids’ lives, your kids are given the tools to process and handle difficult emotions, from anger to excitability. Try our program and watch your children harness their emotions and gain the resilience to tackle anything that comes their way.
The Calm Caterpillar Kit and Program are appropriate for what ages? 
This program is designed for kids aged 3-10. Developmentally, children as young as 2 are ready to participate in breathing exercises. Modeling behavior and inviting them to participate with you can be effective for children this young. Our class will teach you how to do that. Older kids? You can learn hand breathing at any age, a lot of the teachers we work with now use the techniques for themselves as well.
What proof is there that the Calm Caterpillar Program works? 
This program is backed by 5+ years of school-based programming. Calm Caterpillar techniques have been used by Cincinnati Public Schools, with over 10,000 students benefiting from the program. We have used this program in over 44 schools, and hundreds of teachers have told us that classroom disruptions go way down after introducing breathing techniques into the classroom. Additionally, the University of Cincinnati, School of Education and Criminal Justice, Evaluation Services Center conducted a study on the program in Cincinnati Public Schools. Their stated result is that “students demonstrated significant improvement in Difficulties scores (particularly Conduct Problems) and teacher ratings of Prosocial Behaviors and Social Competence relative to control students.”
