What is a TBC?? A Teddy Bear Clinics (TBC) is a mini doctor's visit we organize for preschoolers! We give each and every one of the preschoolers their own teddy bear so that they can pretend to be the doctor themselves! There are 5 stations: 1,2,3,4,5 and after we teach them a little bit about each station, we let then give it a try themselves! The purpose of this service event is to familiarize the toddlers with a few components of a basic doctor’s visit. We hope to alleviate any hesitations, fears or concerns the kids might have when they have to go to the doctor. It’s one of our favorite events so come check it out!
