Worms wriggle their way to winning hearts and smiles
WRIGGLY worms were the main topic at Twin Towns Community Kindergarten today.
A few months ago some sneaky people jumped the fence of the kindy and stole three prized worm farms.
Since then security has been increased on the property.
Teacher and co-director Elaine Clinnick said the disappointed children's frowns were turned upside down when Bunnings offered to donate three worm farms and some worms to them.
"They also offered to come down and teach the children how to plant some planets," she said.
"As a kindy we value sustainable development.
"We teach the children about respecting the environment and it is part of our everyday routine here."
The children at the kindy feed the worms their scraps from lunch and morning tea everyday.
Abby Piper, 5, said she really liked worms.
"The feel like tickly," she said.
"We feed them scraps, we put banana and apples."
Bunnings lifestyles coordinator Simon Schubert said helping the kids to learn about worm farms helped them to understand life cycles.
The company heard about the kindy's misfortune by a letter.
