Holiday programs


 

***We regret to advise of the unfortunate cancellation of the face to face holiday program sessions due to begin on January 10th 2022. 

The safety of our community, staff, volunteers and the animals in our care are our first priorities and with the current challenges relating to COVID we are unfortunately unable to run face to face programs at this time.  . 

We would love to have you join us online for a variety of virtual, animal themed sessions available via ZOOM.  You can find these listed below or via WeTeachMe.***


We are so excited to welcome you to our Virtual Holiday Programs these school holidays! 

Come along and meet our friendly farm animals and playful pets. Think horses, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, rabbits and our ever-entertaining guinea pigs!

We’ve also got special animal expert guests live in the sessions.
