Reading to Rescues MAY registration is now open!
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: Sessions must be booked by the month and equate to $5 per session
TIMES: 4:00-4:30; 4:30-5:00; 5:00-5:30
