100% vegan preschool will open this year in Australia

Sustainable Play Preschool, an eco-friendly and plant-based learning space is set to open in Newcastle, Australia this year.

According to the organisation Vegan Australia, the preschool will be the ‘first 100% vegan preschool’ in the country.

As well as teaching children sustainable practices such as growing produce and using rainwater tanks, all of the meals will be plant-based and made using items from the vegetable patch.

The vegan menu will include nutrient-rich smoothies, fruit platters, rainbow nachos and baked tofu mac ‘n’ cheez.

The early education centre will also cater for children with allergies, offering soy and gluten-free plant-based options.

Explaining their mission, Sustainable Play Preschool writes on their website: “We envision a world where children grow aware of sustainable practices and animal ethics, advocating for the environmental health of our planet in a responsible and empowered way. Children are the future, and as the global need for sustainable development increases, as does the need to implement sustainability into children’s education.”

Encouraging preschoolers to see and engage with the entire life cycle of their food is informative, healthy and fun! From planting seeds in the garden, helping prepare veggies for lunch to watching the leftovers compost into soil, children can develop new skills, while learning about science and nature from growing their own fresh produce.”

Enrolment is currently open for 2021 and open days are taking place on February 6th & 20th.
