Is your child’s teddy bear feeling unwell? It’s time for Teddy’s Winter Check Up.
The Teddy Bear Hospital will be open at Chadstone Shopping Centre on Saturday August 19, and Sunday August 20, between 10am and 6pm.
Hundreds of students from The University of Melbourne will be ready to tend to your teddy’s sniffles, coughs and colds.
During a visit to the Teddy Bear Hospital at Chadstone, children have a ‘consultation’ with medical students about their sick bear. The students aim to help your child understand the human body and reduce anxiety about visiting doctors and hospitals. In addition, the medical students learn a critical skill for any health care professional – how to talk to and convey messages to children and deal with the unexpected.
Come to the Teddy Bear Winter Check Up at Chadstone Shopping Centre and support The Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
