Playground to Plate®

At Tarneit Early Learning Centre we believe it is important to lay the foundation for a healthy and active lifestyle from a young age. Tarneit Early Leaning Centre has its own unique Playground to Plate® Food Garden that aims to revolutionise the relationship that children have with food from infancy through to school age.

Our Playground to Plate® food garden program is delivered by a professional garden educator. The garden educator works alongside classroom educators, children and the centre chef to lead a weekly garden class from our food and garden curriculum. We believe by implementing a food garden we can revolutionise the way children think about food and the environment by learning how the food system works, how food is grown, and the value of preparing and sharing healthy food together.
