Adventures Awaits with Waddles and Pebbles!
Waddles, alongside his best friend Pebbles, invites everyone to join them on a journey filled with discovery, learning, and fun.
Meet Pebbles, Our Penguin Mascot!
Who is Pebbles?
Pebbles is more than just a mascot; she's a symbol of joy, resilience, and the journey of learning. As one Animate Behavior's beloved penguin companions, Pebbles represents the heart and soul of our person-centered care. With her friendly demeanor, curiosity and unwavering spirit, Pebbles embodies the encouragement and support we provide to every person we work with.
Pebbles' Story
Born on the snowy landscapes of Antarctica, Pebbles always knew she was different. While she enjoyed sliding on the ice and diving into the cold ocean, his true passion lay in discovering new things. Bettering herself and helping her friends along the way. One day, after embarking on a daring adventure across the seas, Pebbles found herself at the doorstep of Animate Behavior. It was here that she realized his true calling: to assist others in finding joy in their unique learning paths.

With her innate ability to bring a smile to anyone's face and heart as warm as her favorite beanie, Pebbles quickly became an integral part of the Animate Behavior family. Through her adventures and stories, she teaches others about perseverance, friendship, and the importance of celebrating their individual achievements.

Pebbles isn't just about fun and games; she's a beacon of hope and a guide for the incredible journey of growth and learning.
Meet Waddles, Our Adventures-loving Penguin
Who is Waddles?
Introducing Waddles, Animate Behavior's intrepid explorer and the best friend of Pebbles! Waddles joins our team with a spark of curiosity and an insatiable desire to explore the world around him. His adventurous spirit and love for discovery make him the perfect companion for children embarking on their own journeys of learning and growth.
Waddles' Story
Waddles hails from the bustling colonies of Antarctica, where he was known for his boundless energy and curious nature. Always on the lookout for a new adventure, Waddles stumbled upon Pebbles during one of his explorations. The two quickly became inseparable, bound by their shared love for discovery and helping others.

Realizing that their true adventure lay beyond the icy shores of their home, Waddles followed Pebbles to Animate Behavior. Together, they embarked on their most important mission yet: to support and inspire as they navigate the adventures of learning and growing.
