There were some exciting moments at a preschool in Canyon Country Friday morning when a snake got into the KinderCare daycare facility.

“Nobody was bit and nobody was hurt,” said one staffer at the Canyon Country KinderCare daycare center on Soledad Canyon Road at Sierra Highway.

“Everybody was fine, we got all the kids together,” she said.

Emergency response crews were dispatched shortly after 11:45 a.m. for reports of a snake inside the KinderCare.

“The (Los Angeles County Fire Department) firefighters came in and got the snake. It was itty bitty,” the female staffer told The Signal.

“It was a little gopher snake,” she said.
