Eco School

Meiklewood Nursery is a green flag award Eco School.

Eco-Schools is an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school action for the environment. It is an environmental management tool, learning resource and recognised award scheme. By participating in the eco schools programme we are encouraging our children to be involved in key issues such as global citizenship, environmental awareness, sustainability and a low carbon future. It encourages us all to be wholly involved in reducing the carbon footprint of our school, home and community.

As part of our Eco agenda we are working to develop our childrens knowledge on the following eco related topics: recycling, rag bag scheme etc

Meiklewood nursery promotes recycling on a daily basis through a variety of Eco related topics. We encourage our children and staff to recycle all paper good into the bue recycling bins.

Rag bag
Meiklewood Nursery is participating in the Rag Bag scheme where staff and parents are working hard to collect all unwanted goods which are then collected by a Rag Bag representative. The nursery collects lots of unwanted goods such as clothes, material, shoes, bedding, books and soft toys these are then weighed and the nursery receives a cheque with all moneys going to new nursery resources. The Rag Bag representative also awards the nursery with a certificate of their achievement which is displayed on the parent’s notice board for all parents to see.

We are recycling used batteries in the nursery and we encourage our service users to bring in any old batteries and put them in the bin provided.

Also we will soon be participating in several new programmes such as litter picking and we will be recycling other items such as mobile phones.

We recycle as much materials as possible and all our service users are involved in helping us to maintain an excellent environmental friendly approach.
