Clean Up Australia Day

This month our children took part in Clean Up Australia Day, this great initiative helps the children feel they are a part of a national community. They can do their own little part that helps in a big way. It is important for children to have a sense of belonging to community and empowerment to be a responsible, respectful and caring member of that community. By participating in Clean Up Australia day, we promote and broaden children’s understanding of the world in which they live.

I am happy to say that our children often show care and concern for our environment and all the wildlife that inhabit it. I am so proud each and every time a parent approaches me to tell me a tale of how their children have become active members in our society by helping to clean up rubbish that they themselves didn’t drop. This shows me that the children are carrying the lessons they learn in our centre out into our community, helping to make this world a better place for everyone.
