ABOUT:

Thank you for joining us on Ahway Island!®. Since 2017, we have been your source for relaxation, lightness, fun, and even a bit of everyday adventure for young (and not quite so young!) children. We’re delighted to provide you with activities, meditations, merchandise, and stories for kids.

Consistently ranking in the top 10 Stories for Kids podcasts in the United States, we’ve been featured on numerous “best of” lists for children’s podcast content. In March 2020, we were thrilled to become internationally syndicated! We’re proud to have listeners all over the world.

THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Ahway Island is home to adventurous airplanes, bubbly boats, caring cars and construction vehicles, friendly forest animals, curious kids, silly sea creatures, our delightful Dragon, terrific toys, exotic animals, our sparkling solar train and so much more! With over 400 episodes created to date, you will always find something new as we add to our extensive library of stories each week.

Our Be Calm on Ahway Island® Podcast episodes can become a wonderful part of your kids’ bedtime or nap time routine. The beginning of each podcast episode starts with a meditation and then eases into a soothing story.

ON AHWAY ISLAND, YOU WILL FIND STORIES THAT ENCOURAGE EMPATHY, AND ACCEPTANCE OF OTHERS WITH DIFFERENCES.

The world of Ahway Island is diverse, as reflected in the variety of plants, animals, and people showcased in our stories. We give children the opportunity to learn about unique individuals they haven’t had the benefit of meeting in their everyday life. Story themes focus on empathy and acceptance to increase the depth of each child’s social learning. Our characters demonstrate acceptance of the differences in others, especially those with disabilities. People and animals with disabilities are a significant part of our world, sharing their perspectives as a way to support growing empathy in kids.

In addition to experiencing diversity, our episodes focus on emotional regulation. We especially focus on dealing with changes in routines and expectations. Many children feel challenged with sudden alterations in their schedule, at school and at home. Mindfulness is a great way to help children with their emotional regulation. Consequently, your kids will practice self-soothing using Deep Dragon Breaths in every episode!

BE CALM ON AHWAY ISLAND PODCAST IS DESIGNED TO HELP CHILDREN BE AT THEIR BEST, WHETHER THEY ARE ATTENDING SCHOOL, OR PLAYING A GAME WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AT HOME.

We believe our simple stories, activities, games, and lessons will help your children increase their confidence in discovering solutions to everyday situations. We hope to help make your children’s bedtime routine pleasant and relaxing! Join us on Ahway Island!
