Our Pets

At Woodlands we have several pets that the children help care for. These include our Guinea Pigs that our children love to visit and feed in the garden, our fish in Pre-School and Busy Bee’s and ‘Butterscotch’ our friendly dog.

All of the children in the nursery enjoy feeding and caring for our pets and we believe it teaches them a great deal about responsibility and caring for others.

The children get very involved in looking after them and as well as increasing their self esteem and independence it does a great deal in increasing their social skills.
