Early Learning Program

Making your centre more sustainable!

This page is full of tools to help you with the EcoMarines Early Learning Program. There is heaps of information about starting the program, helpful resources, tips to make your centre more sustainable and more. 

Every couple of months, your centre can get involved in an Eco-Focus (below) which has exciting challenges, amazing prizes to win and extra activities to help educate children. We will email prompts for the focus, but you can do them whenever you like!

This program and associated challenges and activities has been linked to the Early Years Learning Framework: Belonging, Being and Becoming. Click below for a summary of links!
