Kew Little Pigs focuses on animal enrichment for children, giving children stimulating opportunities they may never have at home to spend time with animals they may never usually have hands on experience with. This is a great feature for children with allergies and asthma, as pigs have hair instead of fur, making them hypoallergenic.
Our visits are fun for both children and staff! We have over 6 years’ experience going to schools and care facilities with our micro pigs. Our visits allow children to use their imagination and branch out from everyday school learning.
Pig care - providing a sense of responsibility to children
Anatomy - Can be simplified or made complex depending on the age range of children.
Mini pig keeping - You will take part in husbandry, helping us to either muck out and fluff up the beds, give new hay and straw and help to groom them. (These activities are age dependent)
You will be able to have some free time to play and get pictures with the pigs.
A certificate will be awarded for your participation in this activity.

The Kew Little Pigs experience has been adapted to provide opportunities for Foundation, Infant and Junior (Primary) school children, with links across the EYFS and Primary Curriculum. Although at present Kew Little Pigs education shows are targeted at EYFS, KS1 & 2, our services can be adapted to provide educational experiences for KS3 and above.
