A stay in the hospital can be an overwhelming experience for children and their families as a child’s need for learning and creativity does not stop. The Banner Children's Hospital School program helps with that and brings the classroom to the hospital. Our staff of experienced teachers offers on-site classroom or bedside teaching to help kids keep up with their studies while they are in the hospital.
The goal of the hospital school program is to provide children with individualized educational support to prevent them from falling behind academically, and assist with a seamless re-entry to their home school when they are medically ready to return.
Children can face a variety of challenges if their education is interrupted including being held back a grade, losing scholarship opportunities and even being asked to leave a school.
The Banner Children’s Hospital School program allows kids to focus on what is important … getting better!
