At Daisy Hill, we believe that it is invaluable that young children be exposed to, and care for animals. Before Ms. Moore opened Daisy Hill Academy, she received the necessary permits from the City of Colleyville and Texas Childcare Licensing to have goats and parakeets at the school. When Daisy Hill Academy opened on February 2, 1998 our "extended family" began with twin goats, Billy and Willy, and two parakeets named Bluey and Snowy.
Through the years, we have had not only goats and parakeets, but guinea pigs, hamsters, oscar fish, beta fish, garibaldi goldfish (until the herons found our pond!), hermit crabs, rabbits, and one particularly ornery miniature horse named Dusty. Today, our students help love and care for our goat, Casper, and our parakeets, Jack and Lilly.
