Sustainability and Caring for the World
“We did not weave the web of life, we are merely strands in it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves”
Chief Seattle 1854
At Leeds Early Years Association we recognise how important it is to teach our children to take care of the world in which we live. We try to practice what we preach by considering the impact on the environment when using and buying resources.
We aim to reduce unnecessary waste, reusing everyday items to create scrap sculptures, and ensuring the children understand that some things can be recycled.
We have a dedicated staff Eco team,
Sue McLeod at Headingley Preschool
Lourdes Romero at Meanwood Valley Preschool
Both are passionate about the environment, and who are currently working on an accreditation scheme to continuously improve our sustainability.
Do you have any skills or suggestions to contribute that would help us to achieve this? Please let us know.
