Sustainable education at Lilian Cannam Kindergarten is a part of everyday practices. It is embedded within the curriculum and part of the day to day running of the service. This responsibility is also reflected in the NQS, which asks that each service take ‘an active role in caring for its environment and contributes to a sustainable future’ (NQS Standard 3.3). More specifically, settings are asked to embed sustainable practices into their operations Element 3.3.1) and to support children to ‘become environmentally responsible and show respect for the environment’ (Element 3.3.2). This year we have partnered with the City of Port Phillip to work together towards a sustainable future. We hope to see improved results in energy, water and waste reduction and enriched education outcomes.
