    Kindergarten to promote a positive approach to food education

    Freshwater Christian Kindergarten is now partnering with the “Stephanie Alexander” Kitchen Garden Program, whose vision is to enable children to form positive food habits for life, through fun pleasurable and educational food experiences and hands-on learning.

    According to the Queensland  Government, “The aim of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program is to introduce pleasurable food education which emphasises the flavours as well as the health benefits of fresh, seasonal food into as many Australian primary schools as possible”

    This program equips our staff with the tools to set up productive gardens, grow plants to use this home-grown food in our cooking experiences; enabling us to sit and eat together, sharing our experiences and knowledge.

    We would like to encourage any parents or Friends of the College who wish to come and chat abou

    t the program, help with the gardening or cooking to come and be a part of this exciting program.
