At Blossom Preschool we implement a sustainability plan to involve the children in the process of learning about nature, the environment, animals and the planet.
Sustainability can be defined as a way to be more resourceful with nature and teaches children about being mindful of the environment. If it is something that should last forever, it is something that we should support and sustain. Helping them understand more about the environment encourages them to be involved in the process of sustainability.
To support and sustain our world we need to keep it as healthy as possible by protecting and sustaining wildlife, plants, ecosystems and habitats because all these things are connected and need each other for support.
As part of our curriculum, we implement sustainability programs and activities and have the children actively participate to gain more awareness and be active learners. As part of our policy and guidelines, our educators will provide natural resources, environmental/sustainability programs to provide knowledge, skills and attitude to assist them in to become environmentally responsible.
At Blossom Preschool, we aim to teach children to respect the environment and participate in experiences that would help build their understanding of the importance of sustainable practices. We created new garden beds and planted a variety of vegetables and herbs. We also planted a number of fruit trees and gardening activities are a part of the children's daily routine. Blossom Preschool seeks to reduce its environmental impact by improving the sustainability of our centre.
