Based in the US, Mindful Schools provides online courses to learn mindfulness and to move onto learning to teach children. They also offer regular training courses in the UK. It has a very informative website on mindfulness for children. Currently there is also a link to a 40-minute film called Healthy Habits of Mind, looking at how mindfulness has been integrated into a primary schools in California which is really worth a watch.
