Planting seeds of caring in kids: Roots of Empathy & Seeds of Empathy

The tot and his mom, Melissa, participated in sister programs known as Roots of Empathy and Seeds of Empathy.


Both programs are designed to foster emotional competence and social growth in children by following the progress and development of a baby. Seeds of Empathy is the younger sibling of Root of Empathy, specifically geared to preschoolers, encouraging early literacy skills and positive attitudes in children three to five years of age.
