Once a month, the Child Life Staff hosts Kids Klass for children of expectant parents. The class is available for children ages three and older to help prepare them for when their new babies comes home. Children will watch a fun video about a little girl getting ready to become a big sister and hear about all the emotions she is feeling. The class also will teach about what new babies can do and how siblings can help.
Children will get a chance to dress up like doctors, practicing holding a baby (with dolls), and learn how to change a diaper. At the end of the class, each child will receive a certificate for being a "Super Sibling!"
When: 2nd Wednesday of each month, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Where: Children's Hospital, 7 Richland Medical Park, 1st floor conference room
To register, call 803-296-CARE (2273).
An optional tour of a postpartum hospital room is available immediately following the class (as space allows).
