Children's Hospital Colorado | November 20, 2020

Children’s Hospital Colorado has partnered with WOW! Children’s Museum (World of Wonder) on a new and improved Kids Clinic exhibit space. This redesigned interactive play space encourages children to explore health and wellness by taking on the role of a patient or doctor.

Exhibit to feature healthcare role-play

The Kids Clinic exhibit features an exam table, medical tools, hand washing station, x-rays and check-in station. It also includes hands-on stations with developmentally appropriate communication about anatomy, sugary drinks and dental health. The Kids Clinic exhibit encourages role-play and child-directed exploration as well as helps children feel more confident and comfortable about going to a clinic or doctor’s office.

Partnership demonstrates Children’s Colorado’s dedication to children’s healthy development

“We are excited about partnering with WOW! Children’s Museum. This partnership gives us the opportunity to bring education and resources to kids and families in their own communities,” said Christy Dobson, Executive Director of Corporate and Community Relations at Children’s Hospital Colorado. “This is a way for us to teach kids about the importance of taking care of their own health and wellness in a fun and entertaining way.”

Children's Colorado’s partnership with the Kids Clinic directly supports WOW!’s dedication to the healthy development of young children and their families. 

Providing opportunities to learn through play

“We are so grateful for the support of Children’s Hospital Colorado,” said Joanna Cagan, Executive Director, WOW! Children’s Museum. “We know that children learn best through play, and this improved exhibit space provides so many opportunities for young children and their families to joyfully explore ways to stay healthy and happy.  We cannot think of a better community partner when it comes to promoting children’s health and wellbeing.”

Children’s Colorado recently expanded its North Campus in Broomfield, which is located a few minutes away from WOW! Children’s Museum.
