Research has shown that pets teach children a wide range of responsibilities, including lessons in compassion and respecting life. Pets teach kids how to supervise an animal and to share supervision duties with others. At Creative Spaces, we look forward to having a variety of children-friendly pets and creating a schedule that encourages all students to take a part in their care and maintenance. By including children in the care of a pet the benefits are immense.
