Life lessons at High School East and West

November 21, 2023

Child Development classes at High School East and West are getting real life experience of caring for a baby! 

Each student has the opportunity to take home the Real Care Baby, a computerized baby that simulates caring for a real baby. 

The baby needs to be fed, burped, rocked, and have its diaper changed. 

The students take the baby home overnight and tracked behaviors include mishandling actions, time in a car seat as well as clothing changes. 

This course is part of our CTE Family & Consumer Sciences Department.
