Little Medical School
We are excited to announce we will be partnering with Little Medical School this winter and offering TWO NEW youth programs!
Little Medical School® brings medicine, science and the importance of health to children in an entertaining, exciting and fun way. Both programs aim to inspire children to aspire for careers in healthcare through demonstrations, crafts, and games! Children will also learn how the body and organs work, how to use instruments that real doctors use, and even tie knots like a real surgeon! All programs are taught by a trained professional. Both programs will be held on Saturdays, at the Community Center, beginning February 13th - March 20th. Each child will receive a diploma as a graduate of Little Medical School upon completion, too!
Little Veterinary School will take place 10:00 am - 11:00 am and Little Doctor School will take place 11:30 am - 12:30 pm.
These programs are designed for children ages 5 - 9. Registration fee is for all 6 classes and includes the cost of all supplies and materials including your own stuffed pet to take care of! Interested in one or both classes? Click here to register!
