The Child Life staff offer Kids Klass to children of expectant parents. Children ages three and olderwill see a video of a little girl who is waiting for a new baby to be born into her family. She tells the children all about her feelings and the excitment. Then, Dr. Higabigabee helps teach children some of the things new babies can do and things they can do with their new baby.
Children will see pictures of newborn babies, practice holding babies (with dolls), and learn how to change diapers. At the end of the class the child receives a coloring book, sticker and a certificate for being a "Super Sibling."
