The Creature Teachers have been visiting schools, retirement homes, scouts and guides, birthday parties, fairs and fetes, nurseries, day centres, and all sorts of other groups across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire since 2011. With a combined experience of 20 years working in zoo education and animal training, The Creature Teachers can guarantee entertaining, informative and bespoke creature encounters that will have everyone in your group getting hands on with, and up close to, a wide variety of exotic animals.
We have visited about 90 retirement homes since we started four years ago, and the word is spreading about how much nursing and dementia home residents enjoy scaly, furry, feathery and creepy crawly visitors too!
We have seen tears of joy and heard excited laughter from residents, and gasps of surprise from staff and visiting family who are astounded at how well residents react to the creatures’ visits.
