Nursery school kids have been learning all about creepy-crawlies.

Tots at Schoolroom Two, in Southfields, welcomed some scuttling little visitors on Friday, June 27, when animal handlers ZooLab popped in.

Nursery owner Janet Jakeman said: “Our topic for this term was mini-beasts so we thought we’d have live animals to visit our children and they could touch some of them if they wanted.

“They brought a selection of about eight different animals; a tree frog, a tarantula, a snake, a centipede, a millipede and a cockroach.

“They gave us some information about the mini-beasts – what they like to eat and things like that.

“It was very popular – the children loved it. It was lovely.”
