The benefits for children of working with animals

From Nine To Noon, 11:22 am on 30 July 2015

Louise Bourne is a former early childhood teacher who has long felt that kids spend too much time indoors. She decided to set up a rural experience programme for children at her 3 acre farm in Horokiwi near Wellington. Under her tutelage, kids learn how to feed and care for animals - from guineapigs to horses, and spend time outdoors.
