Prepared Families – Siblings, Grandparents, and Extended Family

As you family grows we offer classes for Grandparents and Siblings as well as new parents. These classes are intended to be fun and informative and increase safety throughout the household. Aunts and Uncles, Babysitters, etc. are always welcome in CPR and Car Seat Safety classes as well!

Grandparents Classes

It is amazing how much changes!

Grandparents are experts in so many areas of child raising, but if you would like a refresher or just a look at what recommendations have changed, please join us. This class covers new infant care, (car seat and sleep safety), supportive care for the new parents, and fun activities to prepare for the arrival of your precious grandchild. Please fill out a separate registration form for each person taking this class.

Cost is $10 per person.

Total class time: 1.5 hours.

Sibling Classes

Introduce your older child or children to being a big brother or sister. Parents accompany children on a guided tour of the nursery, view Mom’s room and see new babies through the nursery window. Children explore, with the help of a doll, how newborns are
held, fed, diapered, and bathed.

Cost is $15 per family.

Total class time: 1.5 hours.

Infant and Child CPR/First Aid

This class covers what to do in emergencies. Choking, drowning, CPR, use of an AED, and a first aid summary are included. This knowledge can save your child’s life in an emergency!

Please fill out a separate registration form for each person taking this class.

Cost is $25 per Mom and one guest.

Total class time: 2 hours.

Car Seat Safety

Proper car seat use saves lives!

Many parents are shocked to find out that car seats are usually used incorrectly. We will have both a class portion and a one-on-one car seat fitting with a certified Child Passenger Safety Tech. If you have a car seat, please bring your seat so you can learn how to use it most effectively.

Total class time: 2 hours.

This class is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to help other children in need of safe seats!

Health Insurance Coverage

Catholic Health hospitals are able to bill your insurance company for many of the classes we provide. Most insurers, including Medicaid, cover the cost of almost all of our programs. Please contact your insurance provider to verify what coverage they offer.

In the event that your insurance does not cover all of the cost, you may receive a bill for the outstanding amount. If costs are an issue, please call (716) 601-3600 for additional assistance and payment options.
