Are you expecting a new baby brother or sister at your house?
What We Will Cover
- This is an opportunity for young children to gather in a classroom to hear about babies. A friendly Parent Education Program instructor will be teaching them about babies’ needs and limitations, using a lifelike baby doll to illustrate her talk.
- A short cartoon CD program tells what to expect when the new baby comes, emphasizing the importance of the “big kid.” The class also includes a tour, to see what a new mother’s room will look like.
- Each child attending the class will receive a certificate of completion and a coloring book.
