Creating eco-friendly Early Years settings

A charity which promotes sustainability in Early Years childcare and education is to benefit from a book written by Cheryl Hadland, managing director of Tops Day Nurseries.

New book promotes sustainability in Early Years settings

The proceeds of Creating an Eco-Friendly Early Years Setting will go to GECCO. Tops Day Nurseries has gained global recognition for its sustainability approach, including the infamous glitter ban across all settings, prohibition of single use plastics, installing solar panels and utilising electric vehicles.

When Cheryl opened the first nursery in 1990, she had no idea how the company would grow and become pioneering champions for sustainable early years.

Accolades over the last 30 years include Most Influential Person in Childcare; Most Inspirational Person in Childcare; Lifetime Achievement Awards; a Masters Degree in Education; All Party Parliamentary Group leader and UNICEF champion.

Cheryl commented, “The book is modelled on the changes we made within the Tops Day Nurseries family but can be replicated in any early years setting, office or even at home. There are chapters on pedagogy, sustainable resources for children, pets, indoor and outdoor gardening, improving air quality for children and adults as well as inspiring change in our behaviour.”
