Sustainability Program

We have joined ‘Little Green Steps’ sustainability program. This program has 4 levels of sustainability practises for our centre to work through and achieve. As each is achieved we will have a certificate sent out for us to display that we are a sustainable centre. Recycling and the environment and the effects on the ozone layer are important issues that children need to learn and understand. We would like to start graphing how much water we save each week. Also introducing earth hour as well.
