Our services takes an active role in caring for the environment and contributes to a sustainable future. We teach children through a variety of programs to appreciate the natural environment.
At Bridge Road Early Learning Centre and Monash Vale Early Learning Centre the children learn to recycle, re-use and reduce, and the parents also contribute by supplying the centre with recyclable materials to use in the program.
The children collect appropriate food scraps for our worm farm and use the worm juice to fertilize our plants, vegetable and herb garden.
Our water tanks which are allocated under the decking supply the water for our plants and gardens
Bridge Road Early Learning Centre was named the “Best Sustainability Program” in Victoria at the Australian Child Care Week Awards 2012.
The award is in recognition of the children’s projects put together by the pre-school children and educators, and all of the sustainable practices our inner Melbourne centre in Richmond has embedded in our service operations.
Bridge Road Early Learning Centre also won Yarra Sustainability award 2015 and were runners up in 2016.
