Environmental education in Pruszków kindergartens

Date: 15/05/2024

Pruszków’s preschoolers know best how to protect the environment

On 15 May, our EcoEducators visited 4 Pruszków public kindergartens. The selected kindergartens
take part in the cyclical projec
t “Children protect the environment. Child-friendly environment.”
During the educational workshops, conducted using games and activities with an environmental
focus, kindergartners from Public Kindergartens No. 1, 7, 8 and 11 were learning about the ins and
outs of proper waste separation and how to correctly deal with used equipment and used batteries
and portable accumulators. During the classes, children also learned about the problem of used
packaging and broadly understood ecology and living according to the Zero Waste concept. The
education was, of course, supported by our nicest EcoEducator, AURELKA, who invariably brings a
joyful smile to the faces of young ecologists. We are delighted that the kindergartners, despite their
very young age, already know a lot about ecology. They are no strangers to the concept of electro-
waste and they are aware that it must not be disposed of with other waste. They know that electro-
waste may contain substances hazardous to health and life and needs to be collected selectively. The
enthusiasm and commitment of the kindergartners show that it is worthwhile to educate theyoungest children, to shape correct habits and awareness of the real impact they have on the
environment. The children happily take the knowledge they have acquired to their homes. They
educate their siblings, parents and grandparents.

The competition for collecting used batteries and portable accumulators

The competition for collecting used batteries and portable accumulators, which had been ongoing
since 15 January, also came to an end on 10 May. The kindergartens participating in the competition
compete for attractive prizes in kind. The establishments winning places I to III will receive prizes
funded by AURAEKO. Prizes for places IV to VI will be funded by Pruszków City Hall. The results of the
competition will be announced during the grand finale on 11 June 2024. Once again, the event will be
hosted by the Public Kindergarten No. 13 in Pruszków. Representatives of all the kindergartens that
took part in our competition, as well as representatives of the municipal authorities, will meet at the
gala. As every year, the emotions of the finale will be accompanied by a performance by
kindergartners from Public Kindergarten No. 13.
