Compassionate Kids program

Compassionate Kids is a program for children between the ages of 4-16 years.  Groups may be split between the ages of 4-6 and 7-10  and 11+ depending on the age groups of kids attending.

 


Kids and their families will be welcomed to the sanctuary, take part in an educational session, learning how in many ways, animals are just like us, tapping into empathy by considering how others feel in certain situations, and the importance of being kind.  A short, kid-friendly tour of the sanctuary will introduce youngsters to the residents of Little Oak with some age-appropriate information about them.  The program winds up with some activities, craft and some kid friendly snacks.

Feedback from Parents

What did you like best about the event?

"The tour was great! I really enjoyed it and so did the kids. I liked the discussing about treating the animals respectfully and not approaching them, but letting them approach you."

Would you recommend the Kids Program to others with children?

"Absolutely! You can never have too much exposure to animal welfare and it’s important to see animals happy and respected"
