Our Sustainable Practices

At Essex Heights Juniors, we are committed to developing and implementing practices for staff, families and children which assist in the conservation and protection of the environment. As professionals working with young children, we are ideally placed to influence the way young children learn about and care for the environment.

Our sustainability program is embedded in our curriculum from simple practices such as watering our plants with our leftover water after meals to community projects. For this reason, we were delighted to be recognised by the Monash City Council receiving the “Sir John Monash Award for Sustainability Leadership” in 2014. From then on, we continue to grow as leaders in the field by raising awareness on the importance of protecting our environment for the future.
