What we offer:
Here at Teddy Bear Hospital SGUL we have a wide variety of stations that we offer to teach. We recommend having 5 or 6 stations at each clinic although this is dependent on how many children will be taught. It is completely up to you what stations you would like to have at your clinic although we can put together a selection for you if you have no preference. Here is a list of our stations and a brief description of what they involve. If you have any question regarding this list or even if you have any ideas for new stations, please get in touch!
- Ambulance: Whilst driving our pop up ambulance children and their teddies are taught about emergency situations and when and how to call 999 and ask for help.
- Asthma: This station uses bubbles, straws and peak flow meters to teach what asthma is, how it is diagnosed and what to do if someone is having an asthma attack.
- Dentistry: Here, we discuss dental hygiene and how to brush your teeth properly
- First Aid: Here we learn how to apply plasters, bandages and slings on each other, our teddies and the volunteers!
- Health Eating: This is good fun! We have a small obstacle course which the kids will complete whilst learning about the importance of a balanced diet!
- Safety in the home: Here we learn about potential hazards at home and in the garden using picture cards and our mini medicine cabinet.
- Scrubbing: This station focusses on infection control and gives children and their teddies the opportunity to dress up in scrubs!
- Stethoscope: With our mini stethoscopes children are encouraged to examine their teddy’s heart and lungs and learn about what they are and how they work.
- Surgery: Using our own operation teddy, children perform their first operation whilst learning about their own anatomy at the same time. (This station works particularly well with the scrubbing station!)
- Vital Signs: Here we discuss what vital signs are and practice measuring them on our teddies.
- X ray: Using real life x-rays, children are taught about why we use imagining and how it works. We then build our own skeleton using our life-size jigsaw!
