Welcome to Penn State Child Life Program
Child Life programs in health care settings strive to promote optimum development of children, adolescents, and families by providing age appropriate programming to enhance coping, and minimize emotional distress. As integral members of the health care team in both the ambulatory care and inpatient settings, Child Life staff provide opportunities for learning, for self-expression, for family involvement, and for peer interaction.
