The sustainability of our preschool
Water saving, recycling and family participation
Our administration processes are designed to participate in the sustainability of our preschool in the following ways:
- We use environmentally friendly cleaning products throughout the preschool
- We have received and used grant funding to support our water and energy conservation
- Our children’s portfolios are compiled and sent to families electronically at the end of each term
Water Wise Preschool
We are a waterwise preschool which means that we encourage and support the children and their families to be aware of water as a natural resource that needs to be cared for within the preschool environment and throughout our local community.
Working with water
To support our children’s learning we promote the notion of working for our water. The children use the donkey pump or collect water from the tank, place it into a wagon and then use it in their play.
To support their understanding of recycling and the benefits it brings to the natural environment we are currently working on a process of daily recycling the children’s food scraps and plastics. At the end of the day the children are invited to take part in this process of sorting, cleaning and recycling.
Families are encouraged to support the preschool program by offering and collecting for us re-useable objects ranging from good finds at the local opportunity shops and any natural found objects that they come across on their family outings or clean-ups.
