Sustainability

Learning about sustainability starts with everyday practice.  We believe environmentally sustainable practices should be embedded into the operations of our service and we are committed to protecting our environment, ensuring a sustainable future for our children.  We strive for continual improvement around sustainable practices and at all levels we aim to have families, children and other stakeholders of our service be on the same wavelength with sustainable practices.

Here are some of the ways in which we embed sustainability at our service;

  • Participation in the Little Green Steps program
  • Recycling station to encourage children to reduce, reuse and upcycle
