Children’s Farm & Nature Center

Waterford Country is home to over 80 farm and small exotic animals. One of the highlights of our beautiful rural campus! Children in our school and residential programs care for these animals as part of their daily activities.

Every animal has a unique story and provides a unique experience for our kids.
Farm life is the best life for experiential learning!

  • Mobile Farm

    The WCS Farm team loves to go on the road. Schools, assisted living facilities and educational groups are just some of the places our creatures and skilled animal handlers venture out to visit. We believe interacting with animals is healing, calming and educational. We can design a therapeutic animal interaction that meets your needs.

  • Farm Tours & Field Trips

    School groups and civic organizations are welcome to tour our Farm & Nature Center for educational purposes. Pre-schoolers enjoy a day on the farm petting up close interaction with a wide variety of domestic and exotic animals. It’s a great way for us to share our love of animals and the rehabilitative work we do at WCS.
