Welcome, this week meet Clifton Street Children's Centre in Northcote, Victoria who are setting a shining example of environmental sustainability for early childhood services. Also, what children's drawings reveal about themselves.
Going green
Improving sustainability practices in your centre
Reducing waste and taking care of the environment has never been more important to lessen the effects of climate change and ensure future generations can continue to thrive. Every small bit can make a big difference and it's ideal for children to learn 'green' practices from an early age both at home and in an early childhood setting, so they become a standard way of life.

An early childhood centre that goes the extra mile in helping the environment with sustainable practices can also be a great point of difference in the eyes of both parents and staff members, and luckily there are lots of simple ways to do it.
What we can learn
from children's drawings
of themselves
One of the most consistent pictures children draw is of their family and themselves, with a pet and their house, too. Interestingly, how children draw themselves also alters depending on who sees it.

According to a study from researchers at the University of Chichester published in the British Journal of Developmental Psychology, children's expressive drawings of themselves vary depending on their audience and their familiarity with them. This is significant as it's children's drawings that give us an insight into how they feel and what underlying issues and talents might also be present.
