Practicing Sustainability

It is our responsibility as educators to bring the awareness of  the need of environmental responsibility to future generations. 

This is best achieved through the modeling of, and encouraging good practices in daily life. Education on the importance of reducing waste, saving energy and recycling is addresses at appropriate times during project work and is mirrored throughout the setting by through our resources and our routines. In this way we can lead by example, without hypocrisy, and demonstrate to our children the practices that will act to protect the health and longevity of our world.

We first learned about the Reggio Emilia philosophy when we came across British Early Years Centre (BEYC), in Saphan Kwai. At the time, we were considering schools for our daughter and we were curious to see what this alternative style curriculum offered.

Our goal was to find a school which understood the value of incorporating nature into our development. We were looking for a school which was environmentally conscious, and could recognize the unique beauty within each child.
