The Mini Pets Program teaches children, how to interact with animals in an appropriate way, by allowing them to interact with the animals while being supervised by an animal carer.

Our Mini Pets Program is versatile and is suitable for both young and old. It is a favourite in Child Care Centres and home birthday parties, and great for Pet Therapy at Aged Care facilities. Minimal space is required for the set up, which makes it great for any type of event. With an educational or therapeutic focus or to entertain for a family fun event, the Mini Pets offers an affordable animal encounter for all ages to share and enjoy.

The Mini Pets & Early Learning



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

Mini Pets Objective:
To identify and describe animals commonly found as pets and also to investigate and report the use of animals in our daily lives.


Our chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs each have their own distinctive external features which we discuss
The Mini Pets selection of cute & cuddly rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens are young and able to be handled by all ages. Children can explore and observe the baby animals using their senses.
From chickens to guinea pigs children can see the way each animal moves, which is influenced by the animals size and shape.
We discuss the 5 animal freedoms to create awareness of animal welfare.
We encourage children to communicate their observations and ideas in a variety of ways through oral discussion and direct animal interaction. We ask thought provoking questions and have plenty of activity sheets available from our website you are welcome to download & print out prior to our visit.

What age group best suits the Mini Pets Program:

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

Little kids (as well as the grownups!) love the chance to cuddle and feed their favorite animals! We offer young children the chance to finally meet the stars of their favorite books and TV shows, whilst teaching them about the animals and why we need them in our lives
Primary school children will love the opportunity to get up close and personal with all our friendly animals! The program fits in perfectly with the school curriculum, and can be a great teaching aid. Allowing the children to be interactive helps to develop their interest in animals, and this can be translated well to the classroom. Why not combine the Mini Pets with the Milking Demonstration or Bush Babies for the perfect educational experience? For programs on life cycles visit or Rabbit Rearing or Chicken Hatching Page.

Our Mini Pets are perfect for science and agriculture classes, allowing students to meet in person the animals they have been learning about. Our engaging approach to learning will ensure that it is a class to remember! Our staff can teach the students about the unique features of all the animals and how they are utilized in our daily lives.
