At the Pediatric Center, our staff members strive to provide all of our residents with as many normalized childhood experiences as possible. We recognize that providing these childhood experiences is part of providing a home-like environment; it gives our residents the chance to just be kids.
Our facility provides our residents with easy access to fresh air, trees, flowers and green grass. We build play and fun into each day with games, celebrations and frequent opportunities to interact with others. At the Pediatric Center, we offer our children, their families and their caregivers access to numerous outdoor and indoor recreational spaces including our pizza garden, rose garden, nature trail, sound garden, “Space Voyage Room,” hydrotherapy suite, art room and music room.
We emphasize celebrating every holiday – big and small – and we make up new ones too, recognizing these are all important to the experience of being a child. Our children have led Mardis Gras parades and even participated in their own Olympics!
