Roots of Empathy at Holy Saviour School

Roots of Empathy at Holy Saviour School

The Roots of Empathy has started at Holy Saviour Catholic School in Marathon.

In the Roots of Empathy program, a parent and baby (who is two to four months old at the start of the program) from the community visit a classroom nine times over the course of a school year. A trained Roots of Empathy instructor visits with the family to guide children as they observe the relationship between the baby and its parent. The instructor also visits before and after each family visit to reinforce teachings. There are 27 classroom visits in total in a Roots of Empathy program.

We welcome Liz and Emery to our classroom. Thank you, Ms. Kelli, for facilitating and Mr. Nault for supporting this learning experience. The grade 7 and 8's look forward to all the things we have to learn from Emery and her mom over the next several months.
