The outdoor turtle enclosure allows the children to clearly see the turtles without direct physical contact with them.

For the safety of the rabbits and the children, the rabbit cages are large enough so the rabbits can retreat from the children when they want to.

The animals and reptiles at SCC provide wonderful opportunities for the children to learn the many forms of RESPECT covered in our Character Development Program. All of the animals chosen to be part of our community are carefully evaluated to have child-friendly temperaments. We also maintain living arrangements for the animals that provide child-safe situations such as a closed turtle terrarium and an outdoor enclosure for them that prevents the children from having direct physical contact with the turtles. The rabbits live in large multi-level cages that allow them to move away from the children if they choose to. We are also safety conscious in how the children are allowed to feed the rabbits to avoid unintentional nips. Likewise, though the dog has a gentle disposition, her interaction with the children is monitored to keep everyone safe.
