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

Through continuous improvement we strive to protect our environment in an endeavour to ensure a sustainable future for our children.

“Learning about sustainability starts with everyday practice.”

Encouraging sustainable practices

Babies and toddlers can begin by watching adults model these behaviours. They may learn through song or rhyme as educators verbalise what they are doing. In our centres our children can begin to learn through meaningful experiences how to understand our environment.

Our families and the wider community are encouraged to adopt sustainable practices and share ideas as a commitment to our children and their future.  These include:

Using recyclable materials where possible
Encouraging children to turn the water off when they have washed their hands
Encouraging children to recycle paper and rubbish 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 and composting food scraps
Educating children and having them participate in ‘garden to plate’ activities i.e. seed sprouting, weeding, vegetable gardens, cooking amongst other activities
