We wold like to improve the sustainability efforts at the My Story centre, and use our efforts as a teachable opportunity for the children. To start this process, we have introduced trolleys for each room that can accommodate the fresh food, a scrape bowl (so the children can scrape their scraps and take to a composting area), and face washers (to help the children to wipe their faces, instead of using disposable wet wipes).
The educators have really embraced this change and it is prompting a lot of conversations with the children about our environment, and the responsibilities we share.
What Next: Look into setting up a rainwater tank to effectively manage water run off and provide a sustainable water play area.
