Give Your Children Hope

Early Years Get A Head Start with ADO

Choosing a Preschool Nursery is never an easy job for parents-carers, with so many options and factors in the mix before you even start to narrow down the alternatives. Here at ADO, our job is to prepare the early years children for reception and primary school and to give them the best possible start before embarking on their new school learning 'career'. The transition period for those children can be a real test of character and the better they are prepared, the easier they will fit into their new school. With the school year closing soon and the children at the Mini-Explorers looking forward to their leaving ceremony, it will be sad for the staff to say their goodbyes to those children they have been so close to during this school year. Although there will be probably not be a dry eye when their Teddy Bear's picnic and leaving ceremoney ends, the staff know that the children will be well prepared for the next exciting chapter in their life.

Calling All Of Our ADO Buddies & Friends of ADO

We have started up a Go-Fund Me Page for our lovely female Meerkat Minx. Unfortunately Minx has had to be separated from our other Meerkat's, Molly and Marvin, due to a constant battle for Marvin's attention. Unfortunately, as Minx is Marvin's brother, he chose Molly as his partner, which has caused some friction in the camp. Being separated from the other Meerkat's has lowered the spirits of Minx, as she has been placed into a temporary enclosure and is on her own. She has lots of human friends, who are part of her family, but really needs another boy Meerkat to partner.

As a Not For Profit Community Interest Company we simply don't have the funds currently to get Minx a male friend so she can start her own gang. Meerkat's take quite a bit of money to care for. For Minx we will need to build her a suitable enriched enclosure and ensure that it is both fox proof and escape proof. This is considerably more expensive than say a Guinea Pig enclosure. We will also need to make sure we have plans to keep an area suitably heated in winter, as Meerkats will struggle when it gets cold.

Our Meerkats have brought joy to many of our customers visiting Poets Corner. We would like to think that the donations raised from Go Fund Me will be an investment so that many more children, young people and adults can enjoy the presence of Meerkats on our site. I mean, its not everyday you get an opportunity to see Meerkats close up and personal in Welling! But that's where you come in 😊.

We have 2.500 likes on this page and just a single £1 from you all can much a difference to Minx's life. So if you can, please donate. It will mean the world to us at ADO to be able to give Minx her own partner and also a fresh enclosure for a fresh start.

Any donations of £50 or more, will have the opportunity to meet and be thanked by Minx in person. Please like, share and spread the word.

Thanks In Advance

The ADO Team 🐾

Please vist the GO FUND ME PAGE HERE> to donate.

ADDENDUM - 27th October 2017

We are pleased to announce that the plea to help raise funds to find a partner meerkat for Minx has helped enormously, to the extent we have now sourced and purchased a young boy meerkat. In the end we raised nearly £400 through Go Fund Me and private donations to be able to buy a young meerkat from a specialist breeder in the West Country. The young Meerkat is currently in quarantine, but will soon be introduced to Minx slowly over a two week period so that she gets used to his smells and noises. Once we are happy that her curiosity gets to the stage she wants to meet him without barriers, we will let them meet under strict controlled circumstances. Although they look lovely and cuddly, female Meerkats can be devastatingly cruel if they reject another Meerkat, so we have to be sure the bond is there. 

At the moment Mike the Meerkat is bonding with humans and being young and lively is always hungry and seeking attention.
