The Real Care Infant Simulators give male and female adolescents the most realistic infant care experience possible. The simulators are designed to look, feel, sound and respond like a real infant. They are designed to help students experience the emotional, financial and social consequences of parenting and improve parent/child communication.
The simulators require realistic care and are designed to produce reports on exactly how each baby was cared for. This program creates a powerful, hands-on experience while teaching valuable life lessons to the participants.
Our lending program allows our 20+ simulators to travel from site-to-site throughout the year. They can be requested by any local middle or high school, church or community organization.
If you are interested in having the Real Care simulators at your school, church, club or organization, please contact our Community Educators at (803) 648-3456.
