SPCA is pleased to announce that the start of our Reading to Rescues programme! Reading to Rescues is for children aged 5-12 years from beginning to advanced readers and is supervised by a Bermuda schoolteacher. This programme is a wonderful opportunity for our community to engage with our animals, it gives children the chance to practise and sharpen their reading skills in front of a non-judgemental audience, and it provides our animals with much needed one-on-one socialisation time.
COST: $5 per session
TIMES: 4:00-4:30pm; 4:30-5:00pm; 5:00-5:30pm on Wednesdays
Parents/guardians can register their child(ren) for one 30-minute session each week with our shelter animals. Please note:
- Participation is limited to 5 children per session and is subject to change.
- Siblings and/or friends are not permitted during your child’s reading session unless they are signed up in the same time slot.
