Aurangabad, 5th August 2016: To be healthy we need to live in a healthy environment. The small changes each one of us can make will add up to big changes which will help make our environment healthier now and in the future. On the path towards achieving the vision of a clean and healthy environment, Sesame Street Preschool at Cidco H4 and Garkheda in Aurangabad organised a plantation drive. Kids planted saplings in their neighbourhood as they took tiny steps that would help in preserving planet earth.
Mona Singh, Vice President, Sesame Schoolhouse, shares, “Children are tomorrow’s leaders and need to be equipped for tomorrow’s challenges. We must adequately prepare them for the future they will inherit. This requires a commitment to providing children with environmental education at the early stages so that they grow up becoming environment-friendly human beings. Simple prudent habits like not littering, saving water and electricity, reusing and recycling, when embedded in the early years- a time when the brain’s development is at its peak, usually continue to stay for a lifetime. Sesame Street Preschool has always encouraged holistic learning for children and such plantation drives are a way of making our young learners conscious of the environment.”
Sesame Street Preschool goes beyond ABCs and 123s to instil the skills of ideation, confidence, communication and collaboration – skills that are needed not just for school but for life.
