At Sweet Pea, we recognize the importance of connecting with our natural environment, and we are also acutely aware of our role in protecting and preserving our fragile planet. Therefore, our learning programme will incorporate many elements of our natural environment. We will nurture in our children a love, understanding and appreciation of nature through positive interactions with our natural environment. Using nature, we will build on the child’s natural inclination to be young explorers and curious investigators thereby ensuring that we build a foundation for them to grow up to be responsible custodians of our planet.
Furthermore, we will ensure that products used at our centre will be environmentally friendly and our carbon footprint is kept to a minimum. We will also explain to children exactly what we are doing so that they understand at a very young age their social responsibility to their planet.
“The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved.” Richard Rogers
