The Base Baby Watching UK website describes the programme as follows:
B.A.S.E. ® Babywatching is most often a classroom-based programme
which increases children’s empathy and sensitivity towards each other
and reduces anxiety and aggression. It can also be effective in smaller
Babywatching is a teacher-led, evidence-based programme, designed to
enable children to access their empathy through observing a mother and
baby and experiencing how a secure attachment relationship develops.
Research is showing that watching a mother (or father) and baby
consistently helps children to experience empathy internally themselves
and externally as they observe empathic exchanges between the parent and
the baby. Children watch closely as parents and babies signal to each
other and attune. This awareness of their growing relationship has been
found to reduce the children’s hostility and anxiety and increase their
sensitivity and alertness.

If you think B.A.S.E could help the children in your class/school or if you think your child may benefit from the programme please contact us
or ask your child's school to contact us and we can discuss the referral.
You can book our therapist term time only to run a baby watching group in your school or establishment.
Cost is £60 per 1 hour visit (session runs for 30minutes). Weekly Sessions continue until the baby being observed is either walking or a year old, which ever occurs first.
