IT was smiles all around at ABC Goodstart Bourchier Street, Shepparton on Thursday when piglets, chooks, ducks, miniature goats, rabbits, ponies and even spotty sheep stopped in for a visit.
The centre’s 105 toddlers enjoyed interaction with the animals, feeding, patting and holding them.
Centre Director, Jenny Bodle said the hands-on experience was fantastic because many of the children had not experienced anything like it before.
“It teaches them a lot. Some were a bit scared at the start but you can see now how much they all love it,” she explained.
