Kids care for pets as they care for their family members and close friends. Kids even talk and share with their pets their thought and secrets like a routine.
“Caring for Pets” project is a key academic theme in April which integrates and increase kids’ knowledges and awareness about pets. Kids are expected to familiarize themselves with pets as well as advance the fine motor skills throughout activities such as grooming, taking care of teeth and feeding pets.

“Caring for pets” project inspires children to comprehend their skills and offer them opportunities to express their individual creativity through designing birds’ costumes; matching and printing pets’ bones on the paper.
Students mix colors, shape and stick little friends.
While younger students are trying to print pets’ bones in the right position, older students are decorating their classes’ walls.
“I splash water onto the ducks but no one swims” said the student to the teacher; “Why does it swim the another way?” “Teacher, my duck can swim” are the most popular questions asked in the Duck Racing area.
Furthermore, Kindy City students enjoyed a field trip to Pet Me Coffee and Bang Lang Café where they could meet different pets.
The students are instructed on how to identify differences and characteristics among birds and parrots as well as remember their names.
The students are, at first, afraid when touching these animals; however, they feel joyful just a bit later when they can connect to the new animals.
