Little Acorns - Caring for our pets

At nursery we have some animals which we work together to take care of. We have four Giant African Snails called Bo, Munchy, Keith and Marge. We also have Florence our beautiful white rabbit. We also had Fred our Guinea Pig who unfortunately passed away just before Christmas.
Our nursery pets help children to develop social skills such as empathy and a respect for all living things. They provide a connection to nature and learn the responsibility that comes with caring for an animal. Staff support children to feed and meet the needs of our animals on a daily basis.
