Princeton, TX (PressExposure) January 11, 2012 -- Cathy's Critters, a leading provider of animal entertainment services, announced today the release of a new program called "Worldwide Safari." In keeping with the company's theme of "Explore Your World", the new program will bring animals hailing from around the world to elementary schools, middle schools, churches, libraries, preschools, or other educational services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Students will learn about animal habitats, defenses, diets, and relation to the ecosystem in which they live.
"I have been an animal lover all my life, and my passion is to help kids discover that same passion in themselves", says Cathy Smith, founder and owner of Cathy's Critters. "Our goal is to enrich the educational experience of kids from ages 3-10, while helping educators prepare their students for higher-level natural science curricula including TEKS-specific vocabulary, concepts, and science facts," Smith said.
"We strive to make the world a better place by encouraging fun, healthy, and educational interactions between kids and animals," she continued. Cathy's Critters will bring its animals and educational programs to additional weekday activities such as local libraries, day care centers, and churches.
According to Smith the classes for kids will include animals which can be held. These include animals such as tarantulas, tortoises, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, rabbits, and other potential animals. The company's website says that the business is USDA Licensed and is liability insured.
Another available program is the "Day on the Farm" program. According to the company, DFW students can follow a farmer around for a day helping with farm-related activites. The students will learn about biology, ecology, and what it takes to produce food consumed by most Americans.
