Sibling Program


This May Court of London group offers a “Sibling Awareness” program for 3 to 6 year olds, whose mother is expecting a second child. Parents and children visit a birthing room and a new mother and baby at Victoria Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre on Commissioners Road.

Children are taught about new babies and their impact on other members of the family through a puppet show, a story and “newborn” dolls. Each child receives a “Happy Birth Day” card to colour. This very enjoyable May Court Group offers the program monthly, usually on a Saturday morning.
