What you'll learn in this kids life skills class:

Students will learn how to actively care for friendly animals, through a kind experience that instills in children the value of care, respect and responsibility for all living creatures.

This one-of-a-kind after school program will give your child the rare opportunity to spend time with live animals and to develop the important science skills of observation, classification and communication.

Using a hands-on approach to learning, your child will participate in age-appropriate science activities, stories, fun games and creative crafts. Every session will include actively caring for the school's friendly critters, up-close animal encounters and time to record observations.

Before it's time to go, the students can read an animal themed book or just relax with a favorite creature on the school's farm.
