We are now officially a pet sitting service as well as daycare. Here is Dylan helping with one of our little visiting stick insects that an ex-pupil, Maria, has left in our care. The learning opportunities have been bountiful with the children finding out where to find bramble leaves to feed them and also some interesting facts about how they can grow more legs if they accidentaly lose one to a bird!!

We will take anything smaller than an elephant!!

Thank you to Emily and Susan for organizing the event,
