Sustainability at Before Six

Sustainability or Kaitiakitanga relates to the conservation, replenishment and sustainability of the environment.

At Before Six we practice this in several ways including encouraging the children to become involved with planting and caring for the plants in the outdoor boxes, growing herbs from seedlings to give back to the community when it is the Maori New Year (Matariki) and collecting scraps daily from the kitchen to pass on to a local farmer as pig fodder.

As a new focus, we will be introducing heuristic play to the infant room. This is another way to show respect for our environment as everything that is collected for the play basket will be recycled materials.
