All Queanbeyan & District Preschool Association Preschools are actively involved in caring for our environment and promote sustainable practices through educating and working with the children, families and the community. We think this is an important value to embed within our preschools as we would like to contribute to a sustainable future.
All Queanbeyan & District Preschool Association Preschools use the Small GREEN Steps Online Sustainability Program http://www.smallgreen.com.au/level-one.html and have embedded environmentally sustainable practices in our educational programs and the operation of all our Preschool services; including a goal to reduce the use of plastic and promote nude food containers.
We believe children can be supported to become environmentally responsible and show respect for the environment.
“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
