We recently had the opportunity to have some friendly pet animals visit our centre. The animal assisted activity brought so much fun and excitement amongst our tamariki. Chico, the tabby cat was very good at making friends with the little ones so he got lots of cuddles from them in return. The children also had a great time learning how to be be gentle in petting bunnies and guinea pigs.
Interacting and caring for pets helps develop respect for life and living things. It also helps children develop responsible behaviour when being around and caring for animals.
We look forward to having our lovable animal friends visit us again soon.
