Vacation care

LOOKING FOR THAT PERFECT OUTING FOR YOUR VACATION CARE KIDS!!

YOU'VE FOUND IT!!!!!

TOUR INFORMATION

All activities are interactive, with all children (and educators) participating in each one. You will have a farmer taking the group on the farm tour.

Most bookings will have a group with just them but smaller groups may be joined together on the day. This all depends on final numbers on the day.

Certain parts of the tour require the educator’s assistance, along with keeping the children together and listening.

Note - You will not be the only group at the farm on the day.

 

FARM ACTIVITIES

  • Welcome Talk -We will bring your group up into the barn (you may also be put with another vacation care group at this time). We will introduce ourselves, tell you the rules and give a little information about what will happen today.

  • Information Talk – We talk to the children about our smaller animals including the animals we will use for handling; this talk includes how the children will hold them.

  • Handling- the children will sit down and each get a turn of holding a baby chick, duckling and rabbit.

      

  • Farm walk- we all go for a walk around the farm and hand feed the animals. Buckets of feed are available to purchase in small and large sizes.

  • Open Paddock – This is a paddock that everyone can enter and play with our goats.

  • Cow milking – In our dairy you will meet our cow and have a turn of milking her and afterwards give her a pat. If the children a nervous they are invited to just come up and pat her. This activity is good to get pictures of the children.

  • Bottle Feeding – Back in our barn the children will get a go of bottle feeding our baby lambs and goats.

  • Final talk - Just a short talk to say good bye and thank the children from visiting
