ANIMAL:

I really could never choose a favourite as they are all my babies! however Tiki the Cockatoo is currently my main focus - he came to live with us after being abandoned a number of times,

Kate trained at the London College of

Fashion before eventually choosing a

career with children. While successfully

running a Pre-School in Croydon she found

the endless paperwork constantly took over from her time with the children, her love of Special Needs Education and working with emotional, social, learning and behavioural difficulties. 

Kate's love for animals and their welfare comes from spending so much time with her brother, and Our Amazing Animal World founder, Mark.

It can be no fun, and extremely frustrating for children, just watching someone walk talking endlessly about boring facts and 'displaying' animals and that you aren't allowed to touch or hold! What we do at Our Amazing Animal World is to get down on the floor with the children and really get involved involved assisting each and every child enabling them to ​hold and learn about as many animals ​as possible.


Our aim is to put the fun back into everything ​and ​show that learning about animals can be fun, educational and truly amazing! As the only animal handlers in the South East with Qualified Teachers as handlers we are in a unique position to offer an experience that is both ​fully educational and a huge amount of fun! 


 We are members of the UK Animal Encounters Professionals Group where we interact with other professionals within the same field and can keep informed of the ever changing animal landscape.




Behind each animal is an experienced handler
