Our Story So Far…
.........most of the damage we cause to the planet is the result of our own ignorance. - Yvon Chouinard
Our children participate in a variety of activities daily including maintaining a worm farm, feeding food scraps to our ducks (who then give us eggs), growing vegetables and herbs for use at the centre, recycling paper for art/ craft and other work as well as in administrative areas, recycling cartridges for parents and ourselves, recycling water where possible, installing water saving taps, having a tap monitor when hand washing, using minimal chemicals for cleaning, having grass and lots of native plants in our playgrounds. Children also learn about saving power by opening doors to let in fresh air or keeping them closed to keep things warm inside, turning off lights and using natural light whenever possible. They have done a recent project where they all brought their own lunch to day care and collected the packaging to discuss waste and other packaging alternatives. They then took this information home to talk about with their families.
