Veterinary Nurses visit Boys & Girls Nursery Stanmore

Children from Boys & Girls Nursery Stanmore enjoyed a visit from local veterinary practise Medivet to teach them all about looking after cats.

The children were visited by Kavita and Nichola who spoke about the importance of their job, how they look after pets that come into their care and how you can look after cats at home. The children got to use some of the equipment they use in the practice including listening to heartbeats through a stethoscope and using a special brush to learn how to keep a cat’s fur nice and smooth.

The visit came about after the nurseries Pre-School Council decided that they would like to learn about looking after cats as one of their topics of the month. Every month at Boys & Girls Nursery a Pre-School Council is elected, and it is their job to decide what topics both they and their nursery friends would like to learn about. The Pre-School Council allows children to develop their social skills and take on some responsibility in preparation for school.

Natasha Kirby, Director, Boys & Girls Nursery said: “The vet’s visit was a huge hit with the children. They loved learning about looking after cats and using the equipment. Thank you to Kavita and Nichola for taking time out of their busy day to pass on their knowledge to our children”.
