Visiting Teacher:


"Their little faces were beaming with joy from the moment that they arrived.

The children (and adults of course) thoroughly enjoyed listening about, feeding, stroking and handling a variety of your wonderful animals.

I watched as their confidence grew and eventually every single child engaged happily in all the hands-on activities.

"Our children had the most amazing time and I can't begin to put into words how much fun us as staff had too! We were so well taken care of and felt so welcomed. 

Sarah was absolutely amazing and we can't thank her enough for her enthusiasm, dedication and warm hospitality. The children have even gone home telling their parents about their new friend Sarah!"
