Roots of Empathy: Celebrating 15 years of our tiniest teachers in Surrey classrooms

ROE smiley guy vert.JPGThe Roots of Empathy (ROE) program celebrated its 15th year in Surrey Schools this year, with a reception for the babies, parents, coordinators and special guests.

This school year, 23 infants participated in visits to 19 schools (23 classrooms) and interacted with about 500 students across the district.

ROE is an elementary classroom program where parents are invited to bring their babies into classrooms every few weeks for schoolchildren to observe and interact with.

The program has been shown to raise social and emotional competence and increase empathy – while reducing levels of aggression and bullying – among students.

We are looking for volunteers to participate in the program in the upcoming school year. If your child will be two to four months old this fall, contact ROE coordinator and instructor Koryna Kirkpatrick at koryna@shaw.ca or 778-772-0673 for further information.
