Q: Do I need lots of room for the Animal Encounters?
A: No, most lessons are held in the classroom
or the hall depending on the Class/Group sizes.
Q: How many people can take part in the Animal Encounters?
A: There is no limit to the class size for any of the sessions, but as you will appreciate the larger the
group of children the less time there is for individual handling. In individual class situations Jay can usually let all the
children handle the animals.
Q: How much does a visit from Jays Animal Encounters cost?
A: The hourly rate gets cheaper the longer the visit lasts. For example
1 hour of AnimalEncounters
2 hours of Animal Encounters = £170
3 hours of Animal Encounters = £210
4 hours of
Animal Encounters = £240
5 hours of Animal Encounters = £300
6 hours of Animal Encounters = £360
The hours can be divided up, for example 4 x 45 min sessions would still equate to 3 hours of Encounters.
There may also be a small travel fee to add - if you let Jay know the address and post code of your School, Jay
can easily provide you with a total price for the visit (There is no charge for travel to Schools in or close to Darlington.)
