"Roots of Empathy is about changing the world classroom by classroom"- Mary Gordon, Founder/President

Roots of Empathy in Action!

In the Roots of Empathy program, a parent and baby (who is two to four months old at the start of the school year) 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 his/her parent.
