Sanctuary Early Learning encourages connections to the natural world by nurturing children’s understanding and respect for the natural environment.
Our programming emphasises the connection between people, plants, animals and the land.
All of our centres have vegetable gardens and we encourage children to reuse and recycle to all help do our part to protect our world. Our educators spend time with the children showing how each child can make a positive difference.
We encourage children every day to practice sustainability in their day to day routines, including below activities:
Each of our Centres have animals. When it comes to sustainability and animals they go hand in hand. We believe that the lifecycle of every living creature needs to be cared for and nurtured. When it comes to either composting and using our scraps to feed the worms who then in turn create worm tea to feed our gardens then we can continue using all the nutrients that are provided to us with little effort. In turn we are cutting down on our carbon footprint and doing everything we can to reduce, reuse & recycle. Cultivating relationships with our animals will enable children to foster a caring approach and sense of responsibility furthermore supporting their development of empathy.
