The past fortnight, Kindy have been focusing on pets. Mostly, how we care and look after them, the different pets people have, what pets the children have or wish to have. We also practised how to approach pets in a quiet and calm way so as not to startle them.
The children have also had opportunities to meet pets belonging to our friends. Kylee has even brought in her dog, Daisy to stay for the day. The children learnt how to play with Daisy: chasing her, throwing balls for her, patting and feeding her. This was an amazing opportunity many children who had a fear of dogs to start overcoming such fears. Over the two days Daisy was here the children who were initially scared were running around with her and even patting her.
