Environmental Education in Kindergarten

Heny Djoehaeni, Mubiar Agustin, Asep Deni Gustina


Issues relating to the environment is a global issue that demands attention from various sectors including education . In early childhood education, environmental education becomes the starting point for early childhood awareness in the environment around them. The horizon of appreciation of this ecological linkage will be more profound and widespread when supported by a planned and sustainable environmental education praxis. Four key principles that can be used as guidance in guiding action that is in harmony with the environment are reduce waste and save on the goods available, reuse, recycling and replanting in order to preserve nature. The application of these four principles in daily life requires the support of adults around the child who will be the facilitator for the child in an effort to understand and love the environment. The success of environmental education for early childhood should be implemented through an integrated learning process, an exemplary element of the teacher as well as opportunities for children to take concrete action related to environmental education..This discussion will be focus on conceptualization of environmental education and its implementation in earlychildhood setting.
