Some are fast disappearing – learn why.

Pet Care and Early Learning

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Pet Care Objective:
To introduce children to pets different needs as they grow and the responsibilities required to care for a pet on a daily basis.

Children learn the daily responsabilities of pet ownership and how to meet the needs of the animal including; maintaining a clean environment, provide an accurate amount of feed and socially interacting with the animals on a daily basis.

Children can explore and observe the rabbits, guinea pigs and other pets using their senses.
Children can observe the way the animals move and hop around, depending on their stage of development, size and shape.
Children develop an understanding of the daily needs of an animal for its survival. They care for the rabbits and provide a suitable environment for them to thrive in.
What age group best suits the Pet Care program

Preschool, Kindergarten, Child Care & Primary School Education from Foundation to Year 6. But, the information & interaction can be enjoyed by all ages.
