Babies need to be stimulated & challenged in order to grow & develop on a cognitive level.


Gardening is a purposeful activity involving mind & body.  Gardening brings happiness & success to children of all abilities.  Bigger seeds are easier to manage for smaller hands.  Mix seeds with sand or peat moss & sprinkle from a spice jar for better distribution.  Plant things that are quick & easy to grow.  Identify flowers, fruits & vegetables.  Gardening is fun & teaches healthful skills that your child can use for the rest of their life!

Educational Activities for Special Needs Children | Exploration ~ Learning ~ Fun 

As part of your child’s curriculum, our Child Life Team plans Field Trips which are assessed thoroughly by our Pediatric Team for the safety and benefit of each child. Field Trips offer your child fun and exciting activities to expand on their weekly lesson plans. Our Field Trips are educational, therapeutic and fun! Here are some examples of the great Field Trips taken by Nurses ’n Kids of New Castle, DE & Nurses ’n Kids of Milford, DE:

Community entertainers, such as musicians, singers and storytellers, plus firefighters / fire trucks and police officers visit our children to provide fun activities and educational learning experiences.
