The Dentist discusses good brushing practices and oral hygiene. He or she will also explain the tools and equipment in the office. The Doctor Volunteer will measure a student’s height and weight and present basic health and nutrition information.
LifeTown staff will insure that children understand that although many volunteers are medical or dental students, all medical concerns should be discussed with the child’s personal doctor or dentist.
The Pet Place
Animals in our Pet Place include rabbits, guinea pigs, fish, parakeets, a turtle, a bearded dragon lizard and a snake!
Uncle Glenn's Animal Friends
Inside Uncle Glenn’s Animal Friends, students can use their senses to explore and learn how to be gentle and care for an animal. They can also learn about where animals live and what they eat during our daily Pet Talks. Students visit Uncle Glenn’s Animal Friends to look at, touch, hold, feed and learn about the animals. Volunteers are there to assist students in safely interacting with the pets.
