Roots of Empathy is an award-winning program for elementary school children which has been bringing the wisdom of parents and babies into Grande Prairie classrooms since 2006.
The program helps children to learn about a baby’s needs and development, and lets children see a loving relationship grow between parent and baby.
Classes are taught by a Roots of Empathy Instructor trained to give lessons on how a baby grows, naming and talking about feelings, and thinking about the feelings of others. The program has expanded into several schools throughout Grande Prairie.
The focus of Roots of Empathy in the long term is to build capacity of the next generation for responsible citizenship and responsive parenting. In the short term, Roots of Empathy focuses on raising levels of empathy, resulting in more respectful and caring relationships and reduced levels of bullying and aggression.
Roots of Empathy’s mission is to build caring, peaceful, and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults.
