Essex is in the process of organizing the Roots of Empathy program at the school.
The program involves a Family Volunteer with one or both parents that will be available to visit with their baby at the school throughout the year. The baby is between 2 to 4 months old at the start of the program this fall.
An instructor will liaise with the potential family volunteer. This volunteer opportunity requires the family to make a commitment and work with the instructor through the school year.

Please contact the Principal at Essex P.S. (416-393-0710) if you would like to volunteer for this initiative.
