• Eco Solutions

    It’s time to ditch the disposable plastics and ‘Focus On Solutions’

    We are just not going to do it anymore – no more using ‘quick-fix’ single-use plastic.
    Each day we make conscious efforts to make our Beautiful Minds Nurseries “throw-away” plastic free!
    Parents and all in our community please help us to make this happen, please help us to turn back the time on the health of our planet and make it healthy again, make our planet healthy for all children, their grandchildren and all the animals – great and small.

    We began this worthy and eco-conscious campaign many years back and continue to today to be sure we follow the ethos of taking care of nature.
