Doctor for a day was back again recently! You can imagine my anxiety and fast fingers to register both my elder kids for the event before the time slot keeps changing to “sold out” within seconds! This event has been a highly sought after kids fun event since 2012.
What exactly is this and why is it so popular?
It is a day for children age 5-10 to encounter what goes on for doctors in a day in a REAL Hospital setting! Just reading on the program line up will get parents like me to register without much thought because we know our kids will enjoy themselves very much!
There are 6 stations for these little “doctors” to attend to.
1st station: The Doctor’s Room – where the kids learn about some basics of hygiene in the hospital. They learn about the 7 steps of handwashing, why the need to wear a mask and shower cap.
5th station: The Heart Room – There is a super big human heart with arteries and veins to teach the kids about healthy eating for a healthy heart.
The kids enjoyed themselves very much. For the parents, we stood outside each station and were busy taking photos of our children and uploading to instagram and facebook. How do I know? Well, on the very same day, many of my friends uploaded Doctor for a day event on these social media platforms and I didn’t even see them on that day! That’s because at each 20 minutes interval, there is a group of 10 kids for each of these sessions. I must say it is a well planned event and certainly an engaging one. Hopefully, we will be back again but for a different kind of experience.
If you would like to know when is the next session for Doctor for a day, do stay tune to their facebook page. For me, I got the news of this event through a friend and almost could not book a slot for my kids as I didn’t have the first hand news.
