As part of their lessons on basic health and safety, kindergartners at Archer Street participated in a Teddy Bear Clinic led by nurses from NYU Winthrop Hospital with assistance by nursing students from Adelphi University.

Following nurse Ellen Berghorn’s reading of the book “We’re Different, We’re the Same” by Bobbi Kates, students put on their caps and gloves to play the roles of doctors and nurses as they treated their favorite stuffed animals for their injuries. The program taught students about injury prevention and the importance of taking precautionary measures to best ensure safety.
