     Taking a break from her usual coat dresses and mid-length dresses, Kate wore a purple blouse by Gucci featuring a bow neck and black pants from Jigsaw as she visited the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre to see what support is offered to help parents, caregivers and children tackle difficulties they come up against
     She joined parents and their toddlers taking part in sessions offered by the local Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP) and Parent and Infant Relationship Service (PAIRS) in south London
     One, called the "Circle of Security," is offered to all parents with infants to 4-year-old children
    It aids parents and caregivers with a better understanding of their child's emotions
    It also supports a child's ability to successfully manage their own emotions and enhance the development of their self-esteem
     Another called "Together Time" supports attachment and bonding between parents and infants, providing time and space for moms and dads to enjoy being with their babies or toddlers
    It includes singing, use of child-led play and interaction and is designed to support parents' ability to understand their child's cues, feel more confident in their parenting and strengthen their relationship with their child
