LITTLE MEDICAL SCHOOL
Little Medical School of Northeast NJ
Little Medical School provides a complete mini-medical school experience which allows children to explore the field of medicine through games, crafts, and interactive demonstrations. Children have fun as they dress up like doctors, use medical instruments and learn how the body works. By participating in these role-playing experiences, Little Medical School® is inspiring tomorrow’s doctors today! This fun, fascinating and thoroughly educational program lets them take it to a whole other level. Kids will have a chance to learn about and use common doctor’s tools, how air flows through the lungs, what happens to food when we eat and how the heart works. They’ll even get to listen to a heartbeat using their own personal working stethoscope, which they get to take home at the end of the course! This course was designed by a team of board-certified physicians and is led by a trained and background-checked instructor passionate about sharing their medical knowledge with young and aspiring “doctors to be.”
Ms. Lauren Caruana (First Grade Teacher)
Come play with words! We will deliver the daily news, put our words to the rhythm of music, play word association, and try our hand at prose and free verse. We'll create stories as a group and think up descriptive captions for popular cartoons. We'll dream of scenarios and expand all our great ideas in a relaxed, positive learning environment. Students will be encouraged to express themselves in both written and oral formats, because great thinkers become great writers. All skill levels welcome.
