Health & Wellness Play

What do children need to know about Health and Wellness?

In raising healthy children, it’s not enough to just focus on the physical aspect of health. To be truly healthy, a child’s emotional health must be nurtured and strengthened. Developing a mental attitude of wellness is also essential. 

Baby Doll Clinic

The Baby Doll Clinic is meant to be an interactive experience for children to learn about basic health and wellness with activities and hands-on play as "nurse" or "doctor". Staff from the YWCA of Central MA will be assisting and teaching children and families how to care for their baby dolls and beloved stuffed animals.
