2 reviews for RealCare Baby 3 Infant Simulator with Storage & Accessories*

  1. Mariela G., Principal, High School of Arts and Technology, NY

    Over the course of the last school year, we have had close to two dozen students participate in this program. Nothing replaces personal interactions and real-world learning. The understandings and realizations that students had as a result of this experience could not have been replicated in any other way.

  2. Nellie G., LCSW-R, Social Worker, High School of Arts and Technology

    I love that part of your curriculum is geared towards middle school, because that’s real life. I’ve had previous students who were entering high school with children already. We need to support our students early on with this information and these resources.
