Supporting Education for Sustainability in the Early Years

About

Welcome!

We believe in the power of Early Childhood Education for Sustainability (ECEfS). It equips our children with the tools they need to actively contribute to a healthy, safe, sustainable future.

Little Green Steps WA (LGS WA) is working together with an extensive range of educational resources, networks and local communities towards our common goal: giving children the confidence and skills to have a positive impact on their lives and their environment.

By linking to the National Quality Standards (NQS), Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and Australian Curriculum (AC) sustainable practices aren’t about adding more to your busy schedule. It can be as simple as changing how you do things in your daily activity and we show you how.

What We Do

Workshops

We offer a range of workshops to early childhood educators in WA. Topics include sustainability, cultural and social diversity, and reducing waste together.

Resources

LGS WA has compiled and developed resources to help guide you and your service, centre or school as you move through your steps towards a more sustainable practice.

Events

Challenge, educate and entertain yourself with a variety of local events hand-picked or supported by the  Little Green Steps Western Australia network.
