Windmill Hill Day Nursery children mark ‘National Love Your Pet Day’

There were smiles all round at Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon as delighted children met a range of adorable animals to mark ‘National Love Your Pet Day’.

After being brought in by practitioners and proud pet owners, the furry visitors, which included a puppy, two dogs and two rabbits, were cared for, stroked and fed by thrilled pre-schoolers at the day nursery on Windmill Business Park, Whitehill Way, before being taken for a walk around the garden outside as part of the festivities.

Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Lora Worthington explained;

“The children absolutely love animals so this activity has really provided the feel good factor in nursery, as well as a brilliant morale boost to colleagues. Not only has the presence of animals been proven by scientists to have incredibly positive effects on physical and mental health, but this is a great way of teaching our children who might not have pets at home the responsibility of caring for other living things.”

National Love Your Pet Day falls on Saturday 20th February 2021.
