Embracing Sustainability: A Peek into INTO SCHOOL’s Green Initiatives


Sustainable Innovations, the Finnish Way

Nestled in the heart of Finland, our playschools stand out for their dedication to sustainability. Surrounded by lush Finnish nature and greenery, we've implemented eco-friendly practices that not only foster the growth and development of young minds but also teach them to care for the environment.


Waste Reduction and Recycling

Waste can be also treated as a valuable resource. In our playschools recycling bins are strategically placed throughout the playschool, and children are educated on the importance of segregating waste together with our teachers and educators from the very beginning. Creative projects using recycled materials further reinforce the idea of waste reduction, encouraging the youngsters to view discarded items as opportunities for innovation.


Energy Efficiency

The playschools employ energy-efficient appliances and lighting systems to minimize energy consumption. Additionally, the children are educated on the importance of conserving energy, fostering a mindset of responsibility towards environmental resources from an early age.


Nature-Based Education

Our INTO curriculum integrates nature-based education, ensuring that children develop a deep appreciation for the environment. Outdoor learning experiences, such as nature walks and exploration, not only contribute to physical well-being but also instill a sense of wonder and respect for the natural world.

Farm-to-Table Nutrition

Our playschools serve up nutritious meals sourced from mostly nearby, local farms. Our menu is pescatarian focused and we also prefer to offer as many organic products as possible. Children also actively participate in cultivating their own fruits, berries and vegetables as part of our STEAMS education, cultivating a deep appreciation for the journey from seed to plate. Through hands-on experiences, they learn the importance of supporting local farmers and reducing the carbon footprint associated with food transportation.

 

Community Engagement

The playschools actively involve parents and the local community in its sustainability initiatives. Workshops, seminars, and collaborative projects bring together families, local enterprises, NGOs and the community to collectively work towards a greener future.


Revolutionizing Playtime with Recycled Toys and Furniture

At the heart of the INTO’s ethos lies a creative approach to playtime. Recycled toys and repurposed furniture foster a culture of resourcefulness and environmental stewardship among children. From cardboard forts to imaginative sculptures crafted from reclaimed materials, every play session becomes a lesson in sustainability.


In essence, INTO SCHOOL epitomizes the transformative power of sustainable practices in early education. Through tangible initiatives like recycled toys and furniture, farm-to-table nutrition, waste reduction efforts, and community engagement, it cultivates a generation of environmentally conscious global citizens poised to make a positive impact on the world.
