SELF-SUFFICIENCY AT PEDENJPED KINDERGARTEN

This blog in the Townie series is written by teaching graduate Vesna Košir Pevec, who has been carrying out many activities with children at the Pedenjped kindergarten.

This year at Pedenjped kindergarten we are going to pay special attention to activities that support the GREEN CAPITAL title. We and the children are going to raise awareness of the importance of the environment in which we live and take advantage of the natural resources of Ljubljana’s beautiful surroundings. The rapid pace of development and pollution of our environment require us to become aware of the advantages of the natural world and we regularly teach children in this area and encourage them to preserve it.

February’s theme of the European Green Capital 2016 is local self-sufficiency. Children from the Janče unit are eager to take advantage of the natural resources in the environment. In spring we collected pine buds and prepared them for making syrup. We now regularly enjoy pine bud syrup throughout the winter and so take preventive care of our health. Our local environment also offers the benefits of woodland, which we take advantage of with the youngest children.
