Parents' workshop

Milson Kindergarten

11/Apr/2016

Following a recent review on sustainability at Milson Kindergarten, parents have been sharing how their children are now educating them about recycling, reducing  and composting. One family has even started a compost bin at home as a result.  

The team at Milson Kindergarten decided to share some of their discoveries by holding a workshop for parents. The evening showcased some simple things families could incorporate at home, to make a difference to their impact on the environment.

This included making beeswax wrap, and reusable cotton sandwich and snack bags. Participants also went home with a goodie bag, containing a booklet about other things they could do at home, a reusable container, eco soap and a flyer from ‘Palmy Dirty 30’ highlighting free, nature based activities to do with their children.

The workshop was a great way to extend the kindergarten’s learning with their community.
