Welcome to Babywatching for Empathy

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.

Who We Are

Babywatching started in the UK in 2012 with a very small group of enthusiasts and a handful of pioneering Headteachers who welcomed the programme into their schools to see what Babywatching could offer their children.

Our Approach

When there is bullying or unkindness, outbursts of rage, fear distress or withdrawal, every child suffers and learning is disrupted.
​Babywatching was developed to address the question, “what can we do to help children actually feel and express genuine empathy and kindness towards others?
