Kind Kids School Program
Inspiring kindness, encouraging literacy
Teaching young children to be kind to all living things has been proven to curb adolescent bullying, domestic abuse, and animal abuse.
Kind Kids is a no-cost, in-school presentation that creatively combines age-appropriate humane education with character education to students in grades K-2 to teach kindness, compassion, and empathy toward all living beings. Our goal is to uniquely reinforce positive attitudes, build self-esteem, and develop social/emotional growth through the kind care of animals. We show children how their actions directly impact others by paralleling the needs and similarities of pets and people through an age-appropriate, interactive and entertaining presentation that also includes a book reading of Love Me Gently or Gray Whiskers. The Kind Kids presentation is ideal during Kindness Week, Anti-Bullying Week, or anytime. And, since literacy an vital part of our mission, we offer books for purchase or through sponsorship and a set is donated to the school library.
Our team is located in Southern California, so if a school visit isn’t an option, our custom curriculum is available to teachers and librarians free of charge. For more information, please email us at email@example.com. For information about our Scout Program/Pet Care Badge, please refer to our Happy Tails humane education page.

“Statistics show that fostering strong bonds between kids and pets provides them with a solid foundation to practice and build positive relationship skills. Teaching young children to be kind to all living things will most certainly curb adolescent bullying, domestic abuse, and animal abuse.”
