Birthday Parties

Birthday parties are an hour encounter during which the birthday boy or girl and their friends get introduced to some of our animals.  We bring both creepy crawlies and cuddlies so we cater for most tastes.  Normally we bring around 14 different animals so there are lots to see and learn about.  Each animal comes with a few interesting and fun facts while they are introduced to the group.  Includes a gift for the birthday child who also gets to hold one of the encounter owls. (minimum age 8 years)

"Thank you sooo much for coming to Treleigh School to share your lovely animals with the children, they had an amazing time and learnt some really interesting facts from you both, you are very knowledgable and were fantastic with the children - all 90 of them :-) The animals are extremely lucky to have you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you in the future and will hopefully see you again soon. Look forward to hearing of your next open day so I can pop down with my little boy. Thank you both for a great day x " Rebecca Madden

"Thank you Anita and Grenville for a truly wonderful animal encounters session today! The children and grown ups had such a brilliant time. You gave us all so much time to really take a look at the animals and it's very clear to see how well looked after the animals are. We hope we can have you return to us again in the future. Thank you again from all of us at Jolly Tots playgroup."
