Exploring sustainability at Jack and Jill Kindergarten

Here at Jack and Jill we implement a sustainability plan to involve the children in the process of learning about nature, the environment, animals and the planet.


Sustainability can be defined as a way to be more resourceful with nature and teaches children about being mindful of the environment. If it is something that should last forever, it is something that we should support and sustain. Helping them understand more about the environment encourages them to be involved in the process of sustainability.


It is with gratitude to Mosman council for awarding us grant in sustainability. We are thrilled to have received this support, and we are excited about the opportunities it will provide for our service.

Margaret From Moss house

With a grant received from Mosman council we have been incredibly fortunate to work closely with Margaret who has assisted us with redesigning some of our gardens. 

We involve the children in learning to grow food, how to use our composting bins, our worm farm and all things about our natural environment.


Composting is the process of breaking down organic materials such as food scraps and yard waste, into a nutrient-rich soil that can enrich soil in gardens and farms.


By teaching children about composting they learn about the benefits of reducing waste, recycling and returning nutrients to the soil. This helps them develop a greater appreciation for the environment, gain practical fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, and foundations of science.


Additionally, composting can help children understand the connection between healthy soil and healthy food, important for their long-term health and well-being.
