Roots of Empathy

Roots of Empathy (ROE) – is an international, evidence-based classroom program that has shown significant effect in reducing levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. At the heart of the program our certified instructor visits the classroom every week and every 3rd week they are joined by a baby and parent. The ROE instructor coaches and encourages the children to notice the physical and emotional growth and needs of the baby while also encouraging them to reflect on their own physical and emotional needs. Through this exploration the children are more competent in understanding their own emotional literacy and the feelings of others as they experience Empathy. The program starts in September and ends in June of each calendar school year.
