Education

Education is at the very core of our Green Ethos.
 
We do this by covering a range of topics including Marine, Healthy Living, Global Citizenship & Managing Waste. 

Consumables

We continue to source products that are eco friendly, refuse extra plastic on delivery and we've swapped plastic milk bottles for glass.

recycling

For a Nursery with X140 children on roll per week, we've reduced our general waste to just two domestic sized wheelie bins!  We recycle glass, paper, cardboard, tin, plastic & compost fruit peelings.

food

Our very own catering team source fresh local produce from our suppliers wherever possible.
We compost fruit peelings and tea bags.
Children learn about growing produce from seed in our large Vegetable Patch.
