This article describes a university-kindergarten partnership project with teachers in four kindergartens to participate in four three-hour workshops and then to develop their own school-based environmental programs. The four teaching themes of the programs were Animals, Plants, Food and Green Angels. In each kindergarten, a core group of staff was established to oversee the design, implementation and evaluation of the school-based curriculum. After the programs were completed, questionnaire surveys and interviews were undertaken to collect feedback and opinions from teachers and parents on the school-based programs and the perceived changes in environmental attitudes and behaviors of their children. The article concludes with possible suggestions to different stakeholders—government and community, the school and the parent—to enhance the development of early-childhood environmental education in kindergarten.
