Kendall Community Preschool is deeply committed to developing the understandings that will encourage better choice-making for the world’s environmental and sustainable future.

The children of today will become tomorrow’s leaders and they need to be equipped with a strong sense of responsibility and a lifelong attitude for action. Although this is a significant responsibility, at Kendall Community Preschool we believe that the seeds, foundations and motivation for this work begins early.

The children, their educators, their families and the preschool community are involved in having processes in place, covering:

  • WASTE REDUCTION AND REPURPOSING – Op-Shop treasures; food in reusable containers; washable cleaning cloths; waste sorting for recycling.

  • CURRICULUM DECISION-MAKING – learning about natural cycles; composting; plight of endangered species; connections with the Biripi people; etc.

  • ENERGY AND WATER MONITORING – turning lights off; watering plants with ‘left over’ water; maintaining water tanks and solar panels; etc.

  • RESPONSIBLE PURCHASING – sustainably sourced materials; local, low food miles foods; recycled office supplies; natural low-polluting cleaning products; etc.

  • NATURAL PLAY ENVIRONMENT – local, native plants; food plants throughout the natural playscapes; chickens; composting; log, rock and stick collections; etc.

Promoting and having meaningful conversations about the environmental and sustainability issues, keeps this subject at the forefront of people’s thinking. Teaming this with practical, achievable actions will ensure that lifelong care attitudes are developed that will spread throughout the community.
