Pupils agree to leave the litter out
CHILDREN at a day nursery in Finchampstead have proved that they care about the world they live in by adopting a no litter policy.
Youngsters at Oak Tree Day Nursery, in Nine
Mile Ride, have been learning about litter and the environment, and have been busy designing a ‘No Litter Policy’ to complement their learning.
Oak Tree’s Eco School Committee encouraged all the preschool children to join in to share their thoughts and ideas. They discussed what rubbish is and why it is very important to put our rubbish in the bins as otherwise ‘animals will get stuck’ and ‘babies will eat it’.
Eco-Schools aims to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people, and those connected to them, so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.
Now the whole nursery is following the ‘No Litter Policy’ designed by preschool and doing their bit to make Oak Tree more environmentally friendly.
Deputy to Area Manager Joanna Allen-Dann said: “We are proud to hold a Bronze Eco School Award which was recognition of Oak Tree’s commitment to environment friendly policies and curriculum.
“It was great to see the preschool children really engage in creating this policy and it has helped to set a good example to everyone in the nursery.”
