School plays a critical role in a child or teen’s life. When a child is hospitalized, keeping up with school can provide structure, a distraction from illness, and a focus on a future outside of the hospital.
The C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital Child and Family Life Department provides a Hospital School Program for children and adolescents. The program is staffed by certified teachers who are here to assist children in keeping up with their schoolwork.
Our teachers are able to coordinate education with the child’s school and continue the child’s education during their hospital stay. This can be particularly important if your child will be at Mott for an extended period or if your child will need to make repeat visits to Mott.
Our classroom, located on the 12th floor, gives children a chance to continue their education while they are in the hospital. The classroom is open Monday through Friday and offers morning and afternoon sessions.
Bedside instruction is available for patients who are unable to leave their rooms.

To arrange for your child to participate in schooling programs at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, please talk with your social worker, child life specialist or nursing staff.
