“We believe that we need to teach our children the impact that we make on the world and the importance of looking after our environment for their future and that of others. We live in an egocentric and throwaway society and children need to learn the impact that we have, and could have in a positive way, on the wider world. They also need to learn the value of money and that they can make decisions about how it is spent. The children have enjoyed the ESC work and have been proud to share what they know and what they can do. We have seen them replicate their experiences in their play and this has cascaded down to other children who have been learning by copying them.”
