Snakehandler

Kindergartens, Pre-schools and Creches

Snakehandler brings an unusual and fun experience to your Pre-school, Kinder or Creche.  A great opportunity for smaller children to interact with some of our native Australian animals, in a safe and hands on environment.

Sean and Rod McCarthy have over 50 years combined teaching experience in both Primary and Secondary schools including Catholic, Independent and State schools.

Sean and Rod are both V.I.T registered and all of our staff have a current Working With Children check (W.W.C.) and Police checks.

We also have full public liability insurance of $20m and have Risk Assessments available upon request.

Primary Schools

Sean and Rod McCarthy have over 50 years combined teaching experience in both Primary and Secondary schools including Catholic, Independent and State schools.

Sean and Rod are both V.I.T registered and all of our staff have a current Working With Children check (W.W.C.) and Police checks.

We have full Public Liability Insurance of $20m & as we use live animals in all of our presentations, we have prepared Risk Assessment documentation which is available on request when you book with us.

Rod has experience at all levels of Primary education and has worked extensively with various universities in the supervision of student teachers.

Sean is an experienced Secondary science and maths teacher, and has also worked with CSIRO’s Lab on Legs program for several years.

Bringing this combination to Snakehandler, we have been able to develop VELS and CSF II programs to suit your individual needs; we can tailor make a program to your requirements.

Our programs are live, interactive and fun; we welcome student and teacher questions and feedback.
