first country worldwide to deliver Roots of Empathy in every council area,
following £1.2 million in Scottish Government funding. The program uses a

At the school, The Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge met with the school staff and spent time playing with
toddlers. Sitting on the floor with the school children, the parents of three
adorable children, William and Catherine, learned more about the sessions and
how it’s helping the young students. The session involved students interacting
with a mother and her young baby as they learn how to build their understanding
of the baby’s needs and emotions.

The Duchess looked enamored
with 10-month-old Saul Molloy and attempted to read him a book. The couple also
spent time talking to some of the older children who have completed the
program. The engagement was more in line with The Duchess of Cambridge’s Early
