Petting Zoo & Farms

Taking your child to a petting zoo or farm is a wonderful way of learning about animals, and the way we treat them. Luckily, there are many opportunities in the region to visit one! Go to Boerderij 't Geertje in Zoeterwoude, Kinderboerderij Merenwijk in Leiden, Kinderboerderij Voorschoten, or the Milieu Educatief Centrum in Leiderdorp, and let your child befriend the animals present.
