ecoschool1-webMeadows Nursery is a registered Eco-School, an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school action for the environment. Eco-Schools offers an environmental management tool, learning resource and recognised award scheme.

Meadows Nursery achieved its first Green Flag in May 2009, our second in October 2011 and our third in September 2013.

ecoschool2-webOur eco-committee, which is made up of children, parents and staff, meets regularly to discuss and review ways of making our nursery as environmentally friendly as possible. We organise a range of activities such as beach cleans, park litter pick-ups, daily recycling and eco nursery checks carried out by our eco warriors in the nursery. We strongly believe that introducing young children to environmental issues is a very important part of the work that we do.

We have already started our eco journey with the children at Meadows at Pilrig and have achieved the Bronze Award leading to the Silver Award and our Green Flag.
