VACATION CARE INCURSION
Our mobile farm creates more of a fun visit for the children to interact with our animals and ask our farmers questions they may of wanted to know.
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY
We are at your center for up to 2 hours. Most sessions are morning sessions start times between 9.00 - 10.30. Depending on your location
ANIMALS WE BRING
Hen and Rooster
We arrive early to set up and be ready to start at our booked time. We can set up where ever suits you, grass or on concrete. We can put a tarp down to protect surfaces or grass. Under a shaded area is preferred to protect the animals and children from the sun. We set up a small steel pen this can vary in size depending on the area we have and the number of children. We put our baby lambs and goats inside this pen and our smaller animals stay in their cages.
We require access to water.
We normally run the day in 2 sessions but this does depend on your numbers. We are flexible
We sit the children down and introduce ourselves and our animals to them.
We talk to them about our farm and
The children will sit on the ground in small groups or lines we will let the children hold, pat and feel the smaller animals.
3. OPEN PEN
We open up our pen to let the children go inside and hand feed and brush our animals. If the children are nervous to enter we allow them to touch and feed the animals from the outside. We may do this as 2 or 3 smaller groups.
4. QUESTION TIME
If there is time at the sessions end we will have a quick questions time for the children to ask the farmers any farm animal questions they may have.
At the end of the visit we will pack up the structure and clean up the animals mess we will remove this and take it with us.
