A Two-Year Evaluation of MindUP with Pre-K and Kindergarten Children


This randomized controlled study examined a group of pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students across two years of MindUP implementation. At the end of the first year, MindUP students showed improvements in teacher-reported attention (EFs). At the end of the second year, MindUP students had higher vocabulary and reading scores.
