Earthplace Preschool Policies and Procedures
Pets are not allowed on the grounds of Earthplace, as we are an animal sanctuary and wish to make the environment safe for the turkeys, deer, rabbits, and other wild animals that live here.
In the classroom we have fish in an acrylic tank, and children take turns feeding them as a class job.
There are many animals to visit in Animal Hall and the outdoor animal area. On a weekly basis one of the teaching animals comes to visit the classroom. These are under the care of Earthplace naturalists and local veterinarians. Earthplace holds permits from the US Fish and Wildlife Department and the US Department of Agriculture for the appropriate animals.
