Sustainability

We are committed to protecting our environment to ensure a sustainable future for our children and through continuous improvement we strive to be a better tomorrow than we are today.

Our centre actively participates in caring for our environment and promotes sustainable practices through educating and working with the children, families and wider community.

Learning about sustainability starts with everyday practice. Babies and toddlers can begin by watching adults model these behaviours. They may learn through songs or rhyme as educators verbalise what they are doing. Children over three can begin to reason why practices are needed and to understand the impact that their actions have on the planet.

Our Children – are our future and will be the caretakers of our environment.

sustainability
Sustainable practices are embedded in the children’s daily routine and in their day-to-day activities, these include:

  • Using recyclable materials where possible. Recycle, Reuse, Reduce
  • Encouraging children to turn the water off when they have washed their hands,
  • Encouraging children to recycle paper and rubbish in the colour coded bins within their rooms, at home and when in the wider community,
  • Talking with the children about electricity and encouraging them to turn off lights,
  • Educating children in the natural decomposition cycle through exposure and participation in worm farms,
  • Planting in our vegetable and fruit garden and looking after the produce.
  • Composting our food scraps into the Bocashi bins and using the juice to add nutrients to our plants.
  • Educating children in how to care for our pet rabbit and guineapig and letting the children actively participate in caring for the centre pets,
  • Educating children on caring for plants and our waterways i.e. recycling water etc
