The Environmental Education team has comprised a range of resources to compliment the Little Green Steps Early Childhood Environmental Education Program. These resource were developed specifically to address water conservation on the Central Coast.
Designed for early childhood, Dr. Hydro and Whizzy the Waterdrop will take you on a journey through the water supply cycle and show you a special magic trick!
Child Care Centres use significant amounts of water each day, but what amenities use the most water and where can you find them? This free activity resource will take your children on a water audit scavenger hunt, searching for water using devices throughout your centre and looking for leaks, drips and efficiency.
Summer is here which means hot summer days and smart water play. Childcare Centres play an important role in water conservation on the Central Coast. This is done by modelling Waterwise behaviours and providing water education to children. The Central Coast Council would like to assist in your effort by providing Water Education Packs to your centre. The pack includes four water books, smart water magnets and stickers, shower times for staff, a water scavenger hunt, and more.
