"Meet the animals"

About: Butler's Hill & Broomhill Children's Centre

(as the patient),

Came to meet animals. We held a skunk, and a big hairy spider. It was good to show our children that they didn't need to be scared. All had a really good time and wish the session could be longer.

Thank you for your lovely comment. At the Children's Centre we do try to enable children to experience new things. I am glad your child enjoyed it and its very good that holding the animals may prevent children not being scared of them in the future.

The animal event was quite costly and we wanted to ensure that as many children experienced it as possible so the time slots were allocated. Have a lovely summer and see you soon.
