Little Green Steps WA (LGS WA) is working together with an extensive range of educational resources, networks and local communities towards our common goal: giving children the confidence and skills to have a positive impact on their lives and their environment.
By linking to the National Quality Standards (NQS), Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and Australian Curriculum (AC) sustainable practices aren’t about adding more to your busy schedule. It can be as simple as changing how you do things in your daily activity and we show you how.
