Animals can provide children with lots of learning opportunities, eg:
caring for animals and being responsible for them
learning about how animals grow and the environment they need
increasing their vocabulary.
However, animals also present some health and safety issues. With this in mind we have developed this policy.
Animals’ “homes” are cleaned out regularly to avoid any unpleasant smells and to prevent infection.
The children are allowed, under close supervision, to help feed the animals if appropriate, but the animals’ food is stored out of reach of the children.
The children are informed of the “rules” of caring for the animals.
