Critters & Company has three current and one pending lyceum available under the Violence Prevention and character development theme.  Each of the  lyceums use a different set of live animals and stories to illustrate the main concepts.  Each presentation stands independent of the others and yet foreshadows or supports the material in the other presentations.  Many of our clients use each of the presentations on a yearly rotation.

Live Critters increase 
focus and memory retention.

The use of live animals and story telling is an effective tool in reaching students and staff.  Whether for preventing violence and building safe communities, or for developing a foundation for attitudes of respect and courtesy, Critters & Company's presentations have made an impact in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Northern Iowa Schools.

Programming Opportunities

"...I appreciated how you used animals and people to compliment how we teach the character values of respect and courtesy to our students.  Your message was gentle yet effective.  Students in my room were genuinely moved by the program and were able to explain its importance during our debriefing in the classroom."
