Teddy is our school dog.
Dogs can provide comfort and support and help reduce stress. They can also improve social, cognitive and emotional functioning; all of which will be of benefit to our children. Teddy will be in school for the children, for a variety of reasons:
🍁To visit as a treat
🍁To play with
🍁To take for walks – to encourage physical activity and coordination.
🍁To cuddle if upset
🍁To support children to overcome their fear of dogs
🍁To read with
🍁Staff members can also request time with her!
