Training and Running Costs
  • We are determined to keep costs very low so the benefits of Babywatching can be part of as many communities as possible.
  • To become a self-sustaining Babywatching school takes two years.
  • To start a Babywatching Group, a trained Group Leader is needed.
  • Particularly in the first year of running a group, the Group Leader needs the support of a Mentor.

Year 1
  • One day of training a Group Leader@ £100
  • Experienced Mentor support during first year consists of 3 to 4 visits and several e-mails @ £50 per hour £250-£350

Year 2
  • Year 1’s Group Leader trains as the school Mentor £170
  • Two more teachers or support staff train as Group Leaders £200

The total cost to train two to three Group Leaders, and one of the Group Leaders training as the in-school Mentor is £820.

This £820, spread over two years, is needed to become a self-sustaining Babywatching school.

However, to safeguard standards and learn from each other’s experience, Mentors attend ongoing Mentors' Gatherings every two years. Fee minimal.
  • Bursaries for Training and Mentoring

Please get in touch to discuss Bursary support if lack of funds would prevent your school from welcoming Babywatching.
