VEA has teamed up with leading Australian producer Ben Harding from Media Magnet to create a program focussing on sustainable management plans, engagement with natural environments, and the implementation of sustainable practices in childcare centres. This program relates to units of competency and is suitable for senior secondary to professional.

Create and implement a sustainable environmental focus

Filmed at an industry-leading childcare centre that specialises in early childhood education, this program explores practical ways that childcare centres can create and implement a sustainable environmental focus to their work.
