    Help us name our new hamster

    Our new hamster

    Our children have been exploring lot's of wildlife recently, which led to some of our older children wanting a pet for the nursery.

    After deciding that some of their suggestions like a lion and a horse were not quite possible.  We decided between us that we should go for a smaller option and get them a pet hamster instead.

    We had a talk with the kids about looking after small animals and the responsibilities that come with them; what happens if they were unwell, how to feed them etc.  The children were all excited about the prospect of their new pet.

    Choosing our hamster

    Our senior member of staff went to the pet store and brought a lovely white and grey hamster who was used to being held.  This was important as we wanted the hamster to feel comfortable straight away at our nursery and would allow the children to hold and touch the hamster without the hamster getting scared and potentially biting someone.

    Our new pet arrives

    The day finally came for our new hamster to join our family.  

    The children all sit around in anticipation for the big reveal.  This is quite possibly the quietest the nursery has been.  Some braver children sat at the front, whilst others chose to watch from the back.

    Below you can see pictures of their first meeting of our hamster.

    We do have one problem however.  We can't decide on a name.  This is where you come in.  Below our some suggestions from parents, children and staff.
