Sponsored by Abington Health Childbirth Education Department, this fun and interactive class prepares children ages 3 though 8 years old for the arrival of a new baby to the family. Future siblings love to learn about the arrival of their new brother or sister. Your child will receive coloring pages for a Big Brother or a Big Sister, a coloring book about becoming sibling and watch a video titled "Super Sibling". The video will discuss what it is like to have a newborn in your family. A nurse will discuss safety around the new baby such as toys that are safe or dangerous and how all babies need special attention and care. Parents will receive handouts related to the hospital.
Please bring a doll, stuffed animal or teddy bear with you so your child can experience diapering their own "baby".
We will provide a light snack. Please bring a bottle of water, juice box or sippy cup.
The Willowood Building is located at the Abington Health Center, 2510 Maryland Road in Willow Grove. We suggest parking in the area marked W1 and entering on the East entrance under the arrow seen in the picture below.
