This study selected fifth graders from D Primary School as subjects and conducted a 12-week mindfulness education experiment using a pre- and post-test control experiment design. The results can be used to demonstrate that mindfulness education has a significant impact on children’s attention development, emotional balance and development, psychological development and happiness enhancement. These aspects interact with each other to jointly improve the overall development level of children. Therefore, activities of mindfulness education are necessary and should be carried out moderately at school, thus giving full play to the positive role of mindfulness education in child development.
