They’ve gone green at one nursery in a bid to win a top award.
And the children at Prestwick’s Pine Trees are winning rave reviews for their efforts.
The kids have successfully gained their bronze award after taking part in an eco-schools project this year.
But they’re showing no signs of stopping as they go for more.
Lianna Young, senior nursery practitioner, revealed that staff and children have gone all out to involve the wider community in their eco initiative.
She explained: “Since this achievement, we have been aiming towards our silver award and in order to gain this, we have been involved with the wider local community and also involve the media or radio.”
The nursery has also set up an ongoing partnership with a children’s charity. Lianna added: “We have managed to create a partnership with Barnardos, on Prestwick Main Street, and by communicating with all parents and carers within Pine Trees, we have collected numerous amounts of clothing and toys.”
“Some of these have already been taken to Barnardos as we did not have sufficient space to hold all the items generously donated at Pine Trees.”
The children have created their very own eco garden in the grounds of the nursery and were proud to show it off when the Post photographer stopped by for a visit.
