I'm Going to Be a Big Brother/Sister

07/25/2020

I'm Going to Be a Big Brother/Sister is a class is for siblings from 3 to 7 years old, but older siblings are welcome. Soon-to-be big brothers or sisters attending this class are prepared for the new baby's arrival.

Each child has the opportunity to wrap a special gift for their baby.

The class includes a discussion of their role as a big brother or sister. Parents help their young ones practice holding, diapering and wrapping a life-size doll. They'll visit the Family Maternity Suites and have a chance to see a newborn baby. And when it's all done, the children each receive a special certificate.
