Sustainability: Feeding the worm farm

Young children have been made very aware of their impact on the environment and ways to minimise this impact at a very early age. It is something that we, at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach introduce to our little Dragonflies.

There has been a marked increase in sustainability initiatives within the early childhood profession on a local, national and global scale.

Early childhood practitioners who have incorporated children’s learning and provided a focus towards sustainable living as an essential element of early childhood teaching, have a had a powerful window of opportunity in assisting young children and families to understand sustainability issues, concepts and practices.

This intentional focus on sustainability provides the platform in which the educator and child can have engaged conversations in relation to sustainability measures that promote learning.

At Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach we are committed to encouraging open discussion and practice sustainability where ever possible. We combine this with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Programme and our need for enriched soil for our gardens

Here we see these little Dragonflies feeding the food scraps from their lunches to the worm farm
