Child Life Mission
The child life department strives to help children grow through learning by valuing the importance of family, recognizing their individual strengths, building a strong foundation of support, commitment and ultimately providing hope.
Child Life Values
The child life department supports the Nicklaus Children's Hospital values and guiding behaviors of being passionate in serving the child and family, respecting and supporting each other, fostering a safe, caring and healthy environment, being accountable, acting with integrity, and collaborating. In addition to these values, we embrace the cultural diversity of families by advocating and communicating their uniqueness with the healthcare team and enhancing the growth and development of children through the use of play.
