Natures Kids Child Care in Kalbar QLD was built by Mrs Ethel Lobegeiger. Her vision was a centre where children would feel comfortable with the outdoor environment, learn at their own pace and allowed kids to be kids. This centre started their sustainability journey with Backyard in a Box in April with the full series of 7 boxes. We are looking forward to helping them embed 7 star sustainability in their centre.
