The Duchess then visited the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project at the University of Copenhagen. Nationwide family programmes in Denmark give all parents information and support for their infant’s social and emotional needs. The Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project aims to promote the mental wellbeing of parents and their children – and the relationship between them. The Duchess also met mothers and babies taking part in the ‘Understanding Your Baby Project’ at the Børnemuseet Children’s Museum.

Later, the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Lego Foundation PlayLab on Campus Carlsberg in Copenhagen, where she experienced the playful learning environment and was introduced to their work to strengthen children’s development and well-being. She also took the chance to use a slide, saying:

“In the spirit of where I am, I had to do that.”

The first day was all about understanding the very earliest stages of a child’s development in Denmark, while the focus on the second day is learning about the next stage of their life, focusing on children’s mental health and wellbeing. The Duchess visited the Stenurten Forest Kindergarten to learn how Danish Forest Kindergartens use the power of nature and the outdoors in childhood development settings.
