Our environment

Good for our minds and bodies

Our environment

Curiosity running wild

We know that green spaces and fresh air are good for our minds and bodies. Being outdoors is calming, creates camaraderie, fosters teamwork, and supplies endless opportunities for investigation and adventure.

 

Our green spaces are a priceless learning resource and so we use them to great effect.

We introduce environmental concepts early – so it becomes second nature to take care of nature. We depend on future generations to protect the planet, and children know a double-standard when they see one, so we lead by example.

At PAWS we aspire to be as sustainable as we can be and so we lend our support and commitment to environmental initiatives where we can, working towards our bronze Eco-School award.

We are members of the Northumberland Sustainable Futures project which aims to create a less wasteful and more environmentally friendly supply chain to bring food and drink produce to companies in the UK. And we have signed up to the Surfers Against Sewage initiative, Plastic Free Communities, which we contribute to through activities in the classroom and our approach to sourcing products for use at PAWS.

We expect to be attending our Forest School training later this year and look forward to achieving Forest School status and adding to our already comprehensive range of nature based activities.

We hope all of this will prove us to be a leading light for nature-inspired, eco-friendly childcare, making a difference to our children and teaching them how to make a difference too.
