Purchasing and waste

Mundarda Child Care Centre has a low waste philosophy that is shared between staff and children. Waste-reducing activities include:

  • Mundarda Child Care Centre is a proud member of REmida, Perth’s creative reuse centre. Parents and the local community are encouraged to drop off items for reuse, for example jars and craft materials
  • Children are engaged in the production of playground displays made out of recycled materials such as used clothes and bicycle parts
  • The Centre strives to be paperless and uses a mobile app as the main form of communication with parents and carers. Paper is reused whenever possible
  • ‘Waste’ is seen as a resource and staff find engaging activities for children that make use of resources
