Earlier this term, we changed our waste management service to a company that allows us to sort our rubbish into different skip bins. Not only are we contributing to recycling and saving on landfill but just as importantly we are involving our children in this problem-solving concept as we embed environmental responsibility into our daily routines.
There have been some wonderful discussions of rubbish and what it is made of with our children from the Snugglepots room all the way to the Kinder rooms. Each room has also implemented a selection of bins decorated by the children to sort their rubbish in. Their aim was to make bins out of objects already in the service and avoid buying anything new. Creative minds got to work and old bins were scrubbed up and reused. Empty nappy supply boxes, usually thrown out, were also recycled and repurposed for cardboard, paper and plastic rubbish collection.
Sustainability is easy and fun at Kool Kidz on Wellington and we’re so proud to be empowering our children for a positive and healthier lifestyle ahead.
