Thank you for your interest in the Child Life Information Session at Levine Children’s Hospital. The program is for individuals, 16 and older, to learn more about a certified Child Life specialist in a healthcare setting. The goal of our program is to educate as many people as possible about the unique way Child Life services can impact the pediatric population and to ignite a passion in students for a possible career in the field. 

We welcome students looking for an introduction to Child Life, community members wanting to gain a better perspective on services offered, as well as individuals looking for a potential career change.

 In the Child Life information session, the applicant will receive a tour of the hospital and hear a presentation from a Certified Child Life Specialist about what the career entails.  The applicant will also have a brief time to ask questions in regards to the career field. The class is offered one time a month, on a Tuesday or Thursday with different hours to accommodate different schedules.     

This program is for observation and information only and cannot be used to satisfy or replace practicum or hands-on hours for coursework. 

Due to high patient needs during the holiday season, we do not provide the Child Life Information Session in November or December.
