Small Planet is a trial programme organised by the Nelson City Council, to promote sustainable living concepts to the under 5's and their families. Along with Enner Glynn Playcentre and Bridge St Early Learning centre, we are involved in the pilot programme.
Hence the promotion of our existing sustainable practices as well as other ideas we are learning about.
Sustainability - reduce, reuse and recycle is visible at Nayland Kindergarten through our:
compost and worm farms, our growing garden that we share with our children and families, waste free lunchboxes[less packaging =less rubbish], all waste from children's lunchboxes stays and goes home, recycle bins with paper collection of un-named artwork and white photocopying paper, bird feeders out of milk bottles[didn't work that well], and trash fashion.
We will keep you updated on some other projects that we have in mind - pinecone bird feeders and water saving options with water play.
