'Roots of Empathy' is a particularly special and unique programme for children, designed to develop their social-emotional skills and, in particular, their empathy. The class will develop a relationship with a new-born infant and their carer who will visit the class nine times over the course of the year. The children will work on specific themes in relation to the baby's visits and the curriculum is delivered by a qualified Roots of Empathy Instructor. It is a Canadian programme, and you can find out more information about it on https://rootsofempathy.org/. We only have the capacity to deliver this to one class per year – who will be the lucky class?!
