✦ One is never too young to start learning to care for the environment and community, and be proud of the gift of making a difference.
That happens at TG's Child Care, every single day. Sustainability is no longer a privilege and a status symbol to select organisations - it has become a way of life and a necessity adopted across industries and countries.
And so it is no surprise that TG's Child Care has sustainability integrated into its very DNA.
Playing it Forward at TG´s Child Care
Some of you may already have started singing to the lyrics, as no doubt you'd recognise Whitney Houston's voice belting out Greatest Love of All in your head. It sounds like TG's could well have inspired the lyrics to this song. At TG's, children are indeed the future, and TG's focus has always been to give children every opportunity available to reach their fullest potential.
TG's Child Care is a familiar name across Australia, and a very well-loved one at that. They have been trusted by families for more than two decades as the stewardship of their children's future.
What we may not immediately realise is, TG's children are the stewardship of the planet's future.
At TG's, children are Playing it Forward from the very first day they step into TG's. And this continues even after they have graduated. For TG's, it is vital to foster values, attitudes, skills and behaviours that support sustainable development. By showing children how to embody care and respect today, TG's is helping children to create a better environment and society for tomorrow.
What does sustainability at TG's look like and why is it important?
At TG's, sustainability means sharing knowledge with the children about the difference they can all make in caring for the environment and their communities, leading the way in embedding sustainable practices into their centres and making it a natural, daily practice, creating an inclusive and diverse environment supported by ancient indigenous wisdom.
TG's sustainability values are guided by the National Quality Framework, Quality Area 3 of the National Quality Standard (NQS).
TG's sustainability has three core areas - social (families and community), environment (planet) and economy (businesses).
TG's partnership with families and the community enriches each child’s learning journey. The children learn invaluable skills and values such as compassion for others, building relationships with people in their communities and appreciating the special gifts local businesses or services give to people.
In classic TG's style, everything they do is in the spirit of fun, and being involved in community is something the children get really excited about. They take part in Uralla’s Thunderbolt Festival, Armidale's Autumn Festival and Wauchope's Lasiandra Festival. TG's is always showing up as a positive, supportive and contributing member of the local communities.
