Social Emotional Puppy Care Kit
Animal Care/Puppy Care:
Animal Care provides immeasurable benefits to young children’s social and emotional development. Participating in the process of caring for another, whether it is an animal or person, teaches so many of the character qualities that culminates in social/emotional maturity; namely: responsibility, cooperation, diligence, patience, caring, creativity, and determination. Having a puppy caring center accessible to children in early childhood programs invites them to engage in process of learning to love and take care of that animal. Children greatly enjoy learning through play how to feed, water, bath, brush, pet, talk with, teach tricks to (roll over, sit, lie down, etc.), and otherwise care for their puppy. The puppy care center also furnishes built-in lessons in the scholastic areas of: Concepts–colors, recognition and selection; math–counting, measuring, sequencing and order; and science–life-cycles (1to 7 years). Puppy care experiences offer a special delight to the senses – seeing (what size, shape, and color are different dogs), hearing (barking and other dog sounds), touching (petting, hugging, and grooming), smelling (60% of a dog’s brain is dedicated to smell), and tasting (pretend sharing food).
