Our Sustainable Message
At Malvern Early Learning and Childcare Centre, we are committed to playing our small part in protecting the planet and caring for the environment for the sake of future generations.
We are also determined to meet the National Quality Framework environmental requirements that state that childcare services must “take an active role in caring for its environment and contribute to a sustainable future.”
To meet both these objectives and to help us on our sustainability journey, we have enrolled in the Small Green Steps program. This is a 40 step environmental program that has been specifically developed for childcare services in Australia. The program will take us through four levels of sustainability from Basic, Intermediate, Advanced to Best Practice.
MELCC asks you to join us on our sustainability journey by embracing the waste management principles, energy efficiency practices and other sustainability initiatives that we introduce along the way.
We seek your commitment on our sustainability journey by fully supporting any operational and environmental practices and educational activities that we introduce along the way.
