Our education department visits pre-k through fourth grade classrooms each month during the school year with a new animal-themed lesson which teaches respect, responsibility and empathy. Lessons are approximately 30 minutes long and include a critter share time at the end of the session.
October: Pet Care
November: Choose an Appropriate Pet
December: Wild Animals vs. Pets
February: Animal Safety/Bite Prevention
April: Animals Have Feelings, Too
May: Kindness to Animals
Please note that second through fourth grade classes are given priority in scheduling. PreK classes will be filled if time and volunteer availability allows. There is a fee for any facility that is not a part of the VBCPS system.
