Animal Encounters at Meadow View Day Nursery

After learning all about exotic creatures, children from Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell were delighted to receive a visit from a snake.

To extend their knowledge and incorporate real-world experiences, children from the day nursery in Westbury Lane were able to hold and stroke the creature, whilst finding out more about aspects of his care routine such as diet and sleeping habits from his owner and Nursery Practitioner, Kate Chaplin.

Speaking of the encounter, Kate explained;

“The children were fascinated by the snake and this is a brilliant way for them to learn about creatures they wouldn’t usually see in everyday life. They have a great deal of care and respect for animals but seeing them first-hand is great for showing the amount of responsibility that comes with having a pet.”
