Children welcome Stripy - our new nursery pet
It’s no secret that children love animals. So when a little spotty hamster found a new home in our Pre-School there was plenty of excitement and curiosity.
The fun started with choosing a name. Children suggested their favourite options, then voted for the most popular one – Stripy.
Care, responsibility and discipline are just some great skills children can learn by looking after a pet.
Stripy has now settled well. He is still a little bit shy, but children have been very gentle at patting him.
