Our Green Team

Alpine Children’s Services organisation’s 2008-2010 strategic plan identified the first core value of the service as ‘sustainability’. From this flowed a number of objectives including,

“To make Alpine Children’s Services a recognised leader in environmental practices within the early childhood sector”.

A model was developed to embed ‘green’ initiatives at all of our centres and most importantly in staff practices and the educational curriculum. In May 2008 our sustainability group (aka The Green Team) was born. Just like OH&S Officers at each centre ACS has Sustainability Officers. The team is layered from management, manager, staff (educators and administrative staff) and parent representation who meet on a monthly basis.

ACS has developed and monitored education programs and events that promote awareness and education in the areas of water, energy, waste and bio-diversity. We work in partnership with families and local organisations to bring the learning of sustainability to the most important people, our children – our future.
