Our amazing animal world Kate handler so

  KATE  

Kate is our only full time handler apart, from ourselves and she has an amazing relationship with all of the animals as she is family. 


Kate previously worked as a deputy manager of a Pre School for 10 years but felt she needed a new challenge and so we were very excited to invite her into the fold. As well as her experience with children Kate has also worked in Care and the skills from both of these areas prove invaluable with our work in Pre Schools, Schools, Care Homes and Parties.
