Eco Healthy School
Child’s View strives to be environmentally conscious and to create an eco-friendly environment. Learning to care about our environment and the world around us is an important aspect of our curriculum. We practice the three R’s — Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The children actively recycle, compost and garden. We ask that children bring reusable containers in their lunch, rather than single serving packaging, and to bring a cloth napkin. For lunch and snack, we use regular plates and glasses that are washed, rather than thrown away.
In our newly remodeled environment, we strive to be “green” with no voc paint, marmoleum flooring, and full spectrum lighting. We use non-toxic cleaners wherever possible.
In our purchases we look for items with the least amount of packaging and that are environmentally friendly, making those our first choice. Food and snack purchased for the school is nutritionally sound and natural.
Child's View Montessori is endorsed by the Oregon Environmental Council as an Eco-Healthy School.
