How parents can smooth the transition into becoming a big brother or sister

Congratulations on the addition to your family! This is an exciting time for you as a parent and for your child as they become a sibling.


This class is designed for children 3.5 – 6 years of age and their parents to help prepare the entire family for the new baby. Children will have an opportunity to learn about their new role, through ‘hands-on’ and circle-time activities. 


Topics include:


  • Being a helper
  • Safe toys 
  • Newborn appearance and behavior
  • Life with baby
  • Expectations: Smiling, loving, feeding, crying
  • Feelings: Recognizing common thoughts about being a sibling
  • Safety: Touching and holding the baby
