Kids N' Kritters

RSPCA ACT will be running a series of fun, interactive education sessions over the school holidays for youngsters who are interested in learning more about animals. These holidays we have three sessions to choose from. See below for details, class dates and times, and how to book.

Junior Shelter Staff
Participants will learn about the different roles at the RSPCA. They will do practical activities that directly assist the staff and animals. This session may include cleaning!
Cost: $60
Duration: 2 hours

Kids N Kritters
This session is aimed at teaching basic pet care skills and allowing the participants to interact with animals in a safe and positive environment
Cost: $60
Duration: 2 hours

Kids N Little Kritters
Participants will learn about some of our smaller friends! These may include reptiles, birds and rodents
Cost: $60
Duration: 2 hours

Each participant will receive a Kids N' Kritters pack full of goodies!

For participants that attend consecutive sessions, please provide a snack or lunch depending on the sessions they are attending.

We endeavour to keep as close to our curriculum as possible, however in the event of bad weather or not having animals suitable for the session we will alter the curriculum slightly and/or utilise staff animals. The session will still be interactive and lots of fun!

Please remember:

  • All participants should bring their own labelled drink bottle
  • All participants must wear appropriate clothing, enclosed footwear, and sunscreen
  • Participants that attend consecutive sessions should bring a snack or lunch (nut and egg free)

Our session educator and volunteers all hold Working with Vulnerable People cards and have met RSPCA requirements to attend Kid’s N' Kritters. For this reason parents are welcome to wait in our waiting area for the duration of the session, however are unable to attend the session with their child. Under special circumstances, you may receive permission to attend, however you are required to hold a WWVP card and pay the participant fee in full.

Location: 12 Kirkpatrick Street, Weston ACT 2611.
