Our vision is to foster an appreciation of the natural environment, develop environmental awareness and provide a platform for ongoing environmental education.
Who am I?
Welcome, my name is Rebekah Harrison and I have been working in the sector for over 20 years as well as volunteering on the PSN (Professional Support Network) for over 5 years. For the past 11 years, I owned and operated a beautiful sustainable, Steiner inspired LDC Centre nestled in the Gold Coast hinterland which was my second home. During this time, we continuously transformed our yard to provide engaging spaces that invited open-ended interactions, spontaneity, risk-taking, exploration, discovery and connection with nature. They fostered an appreciation of the natural environment, developed environmental awareness and provided a platform for ongoing environmental education. Also during this time, our wonderful team of educators and I developed, implemented and embedded an amazingly rich sustainable program that I would love to share with you. We offered a unique, all natural home-like environment with open ended, natural play spaces. Our program was significantly play based and also offered organic gardening, cooking experiences, Japanese language, nature play and an integrated creative art program. The Centre was an advocate for holistic child centred education, sustainability, culture and healthy life style choices. We had a zero rubbish policy. I adore children (having raised 3 delightful individuals of my own) and I have always been passionate about holistic education, healthy life styles and nutrition, sustainability and caring for the environment. Having recently sold my gorgeous Kindy, I am now focusing on inspiring other educators to embrace sustainability in their personal lives as well as their work environment, as they undoubtedly go hand in hand! Having trained many educators and attended a ridiculous amount of PD over the years (I must say I was a little obsessed and still am), I often walked away feeling like I gained very little, which was really disappointing. There are many GAPS in education and training, but I can assure you that in just one introductory PD with me, your educators will not leave without feeling confident to immediately implement what they learn and start embedding a sustainable program on a daily basis. I can tailor programs to meet your educator and/or Centre needs. Please email, or better yet, call me directly to discuss in detail how I can help you reduce your Centre's carbon foot print and empower your Educators!
