I have written an article on Sustainable Practices in Childcare for educators working with children in LDC & FDC and OOSH settings. The ideas within this article is just some of the ideas that you could do to embed sustainability within the day to day running of the centre and within the curriculum program.
Educators have the responsibility to make sustainable education a part of everyday practices. It needs to be embedded within the curriculum and part of the day to day running of the service.
When thinking about incorporating sustainability into your centre it's hard to think about where to start. Researching on this topic to create my article, there is so much information available on sustainability I found that a lot of the information is scattered. That's why I wanted to create an article that provides a practical approach on incorporating sustainable education and sustainable practices within your centre all in one article.
This article provides examples on promoting sustainable education for children and educators, strategies to minimise waste, reduce energy and water consumption through sustainable practices and green cleaning ideas which can be used instead of chemicals.
The strategies within this article should be inspiration on how sustainable education and sustainable practices can be included into the service setting and within the curriculum to develop awareness of environmental issues.
