Young Students Aid SCAC
Dare Meunier, education director of Second Chance Animal Center (SCAC), has been coming to Northshire Day School for the past couple months to facilitate the C.A.R.E. program with the School’s three oldest classrooms. SCAC’s C.A.R.E. (Children and Animal Relationship Education) program encourages compassion and empathy while celebrating the human-animal bond. Through creative lessons and visits with animals, children learn to be responsible, safe and kind toward all living things. Two of our younger toddler classrooms came up with a community outreach program to further strengthen the collaboration; at the end of November, they began collecting blankets and towels to donate to the animals at Second Chance.
