Literacy Development with Animals Through Play

Here at the farm we take your traditional story time and infuse art, science, music, and goats into it and THAT changes everything! Reading becomes relevant, engaging, fun!

I am a mother of four children, and a certified teacher. I have attended many story times at many different libraries for years, both as a parent and as an educator. While doing this I began to imagine what an awesome opportunity I could provide for kids here at Jubilee Farm. 

As a teacher of the year recipient, I am passionate about developing a life-long love for learning. My education and experiences have inspired me to create an environment on Jubilee Farm for children that ignites their imaginations. 

I felt Story Time needed to be brought to a new level and I could do this by infusing, science, art, music, and, of course, goats! …And so, Reading with Mini Silkies began. The pre-school and school aged Story Time programs that I have developed promote literacy, inquiry, and discovery while meeting a child’s need to have a safe place where they can be curious, play, discover and explore. It is an exciting gift to be able to give kids an experience that is so unique and engaging.
