A University of Northampton project which sees babies go into classrooms was on the television today.

The Roots of Empathy programme, which is supported by the University, sees primary school children have lessons with a baby, their parent and an instructor.

Evidence suggests the visits help to teach children emotional awareness and develop empathy skills.

BBC Look East featured the project today on its lunchtime bulletin – watch again here.

Colleagues from the University may recognise the mum in the piece – it’s the press office’s very own Holly Russell, with baby Isabelle.
