Our one and half hour Sibling Preparation class focuses on the special role of a big brother/big sister. It is designed especially for young children, ages three to seven, to help prepare them for a new baby in the family and to help ease the anxiety of visiting Mommy in the hospital. The children will have an opportunity to explore their new role as a big brother or big sister as they interact with anatomically correct dolls, participate in fun activities, and visit the nursery window. Each child will receive a certificate of class completion. It is recommended that your child attend this class approximately four weeks prior to the mother’s estimated delivery date. An adult must accompany the child for the duration of the class.
Fee: $40 per child.
