This week at Kids Count Marne Road the teachers are talking to the tamariki about "safe-handling of pets". We have bought the most beautiful book related to pets with big, colourful pictures. The rooms took turns in showing the pictures to the children and talking about how we care for pets and having gentle hands. The tamariki enjoyed looking at the pictures and save their food scraps everyday to feed kunekune pigs (Buddy and Lilly), which Whaea Cathy takes daily to her daughter's farm. Some of the Hi-5 children also brought photos of their pets to share with their friends at mat-time. Great job, everybody!
