Sustainability

Amy Hurd Early Learning Centre is passionate about educating children about environmental and sustainable practices.

We have installed solar panels, solar hot water, self timer taps, water wise gardens, rain water tank, native plants, vegetable gardens, worm farm. We collect recyclable materials for craft as well as recycling as much as possible.

Scraps are fed to the worms or educators take them home for their chooks and dogs. Nothing is wasted.

 

Call in to see our amazing outdoor environment.

Some of our sustainable practices: 

If you are thinking a year ahead,

Sow a seed.

If you are thinking a decade ahead,

Plant a tree.

If you are thinking a century ahead,

Educate the people.

 

(Chinese proverb)

Cherie and the Ladybird children most recently created a 'Take a plant, leave a plant' stall. This was to promote the sharing of plants, succulents and seedlings. We encouraged families to bring in some cuttings of plants to leave at the stall and then take one in return. 

The Ladybird children entered a sustainability competition at Lutheran Primary School by making an upcycled water wall. Costa judged the competition with our children taking out first prize.
