Golden Kids Inc. Early Learning Centre has signed a memorandum of understanding to be an enviroschool.
This means that we will develop a long term strategy to become a sustainable centre, including policies and a whole centre vision.
Our first (and ongoing) project was “Our Rubbish”. The centre continues to promote no waste lunch boxes, recycling containers (paper, food waste, plastic, general rubbish) and the education of recycling, reusing, repairing, reducing and rethinking.
Wet Clothes Bags
In July 2010 the centre introduced wet clothes bags. Each child now has their own nylon bag to put their wet or dirty clothes in to take home. By making these bags we considerably reduced the use of plastic bags in the centre. Every child in the over two's has had the opportunity to help make their own bag. They chose either green or orange nylon and a motif to sew on to make their bags unique.
