Sustainability In Action by Sally Sneddon and Anne Pettit
Sustainability has a very natural and exciting place in early childhood education and care, and this is reflected in its inclusion in the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standard. This book will help educators to incorporate sustainability learning and practices in their settings, and support them to model and engage young children in day-to-day sustainability.
- Chapters 1 to 3 introduce sustainability and show how it can easily be embedded in early childhood settings through curriculum and pedagogy.
- Chapters 4 and 5 explore ten important aspects of sustainability to provide a valuable foundation for the many actions that are suggested and for others that readers will come up with themselves.
- Chapter 6 offers ways to involve everyone in a setting, whether taking first steps in sustainability or building upon current practices, with interest and enthusiasm for making it ‘just the way we do things’ every day.
