For primary school age children
In partnership with the charity B.A.S.E Babywatching UK, we offer a low cost course to primary schools. Research shows that it increases empathy and sensitivity and decreases anxiety and aggression.
The course is likely to enable children to become better parents in future than they would otherwise be.
B.A.S.E. stands for Babywatching to reduce Anxiety and Aggression and promote Sensitivity and Empathy
BASE ® Babywatching is a highly effective, schools-based programme.
A parent, and their baby, visit a class of children, once a week, for half an hour, so the children can watch the interactions between mother and baby, and their developing relationship. Guided by the Group Leader, who is often their teacher, this simple act of detailed observation reduces children's anxiety and aggression by increasing understanding and empathy.
Children feel safer, more focused and ready to learn.

‘Babywatching has provided time for children to express themselves freely and engage with their own feelings and empathise with those of mother and baby. Over time I have noticed these skills filter into daily life in the classroom. I thoroughly enjoy listening to the children interpret and observe in the baby watching circle.’
