Ben the


Ben is our regular weekly Reading Assistant! We have weekly visits from Ben the Dog through Pets As Therapy. Ben visits children in both our Rainbow Room and Sunshine Room.

The children love to read stories to Ben and have a chat with his owner Sally. This supports our children’s confidence and self-esteem. Many of the children do not have pets at home and Ben helps them to learn how to behave around animals too.
