We teach many disciplines at Tiny Tech Learning Lab. One being environmental education which is great for incorporating science, technology, engineering, art, and math. It is designed to teach young children about their environment and how they can make a difference.
Teaching children to care for the environment is an important parental responsibility that is crucial for their future. Many solutions to our environmental problems are very simple. There are many ways to care for the environment - from reusing common household items to putting paper and plastic in the recycle box. At Tiny Tech Learning Lab we encourage children to do one small thing, and then add another and another. Before you know it, those little steps add up to a lot more green.
We have adopted eco-friendly practices in order to reduce environmental hazards, such as, avoiding the use of toxins and other pollutants, and increasing the conservation of resources - all with the goal of making the world safer for young children and helping to preserve our environment for future generations.
Your children's health is the reason we incorporate greener practices into our early care program. A number of health and safety issues arise from environmental hazards found in everyday life, and children are even more susceptible to the harmful effects than adults. Everyday cleaning products, foods, and the air we breathe all pose potential environmental risks.
Our focus for a green child center is waste reduction; which is accomplished through recycling and reusing, as well as by choosing products with minimal packaging. Many children enjoy active participation in recycling programs. Not only does this reduce waste, it's a great sorting exercise.
Eco-health education in preschool is particularly important because it is the social responsibility of adults to educate children and young people to become positive agents of change for ecosystem sustainability, social development, and human health.
