Over 4 weeks, children care for newborn rabbits (kittens) and their mother to gain an understanding of the changing needs of the rabbits and how to care for a pet.

Children observe the dramatic changes that take place as the rabbits develop over time, from kittens total dependence on their Mother, right through to when they become independent rabbits.

What to expect from a
Rabbit Rearing Program



We bring out a home on wheels for our mummy bunny (Doe) and her kittens. Similar to the picture shown. We set up the enclosure with food, water and wood shavings and equip you with the knowledge to care for your pets.

Up on end will be the ‘nest’ with the babies and fur and straw.

For the first 2 weeks you will not be able to pick up the babies and play with them however after they are jumping out of the nest themselves, the nest can be removed and the babies along with mum are able to come out in a controlled environment for pats and to play.


Rabbit Rearing Program includes:

A Mother Rabbit and her newborn kittens, all the food and bedding for their duration of stay.


What We Bring:

  • Mother Rabbit
  • Her newborn kittens
  • Animal Feed
  • Water bowls
  • Hay
  • Purpose built animal enclosure

Rabbit Rearing & Early Learning

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

Rabbit Rearing Objective:
To introduce children to Rabbits life cycle, stages of development, different needs as they grow and the responsibilities required to care for a pet on a daily basis.



The Rabbit Rearing Life Cycle Program demonstrates living things grow change and have off spring similar to themselves.
Living things have life cycles and depend on each other and their environment to survive.
Children are taught the basic needs of the kittens, including a diet of food and water and the important duties and responsibilities of caring for a pet.
Children can explore and observe the rabbits using their senses.
Children can observe the way the rabbits 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 Rabbit Rearing

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.

Why not invite all your friends to a farmyard party?
