At the Hive, we believe in making a difference to the environment and creating a sustainable future for our children.
Learning about sustainability begins from day one, and we believe children are never too young to learn. We have daily reminders and practice which reinforces the message we believe is important for our children. Our hands-on approach and day-to-day activities and sustainability practices include:
Growing their own
herb and vegetable gardens that children help tend to and then help to prepare meals with and by learning to eat what they grow
Nature and environment
Teaching our children through simple lessons about nature and the environment and our responsibility to the planet by saving water, growing trees and minimising the use of plastic and the damage plastic can do to our waterways
Play areas using natural resources such as sand, stones, leaves, clay and mud.
Recycling and reusing
Keeping chickens or rabbits at each centre where the children will save and collect food scraps for them instead of throwing them in the rubbish.
