Getting children to develop good eating habits and to eat healthy food early on is vital. We recognise that it is important to ensure that the children in our care are provided with nutritiously balanced food that will give them all the goodness they require for healthy growth, mental development and the best possible start in life.
Children in Pre-School are encouraged to self-serve their drinks under the supervision of staff.
All the children’s lunches are provided daily by an in house cook. They provide seasonal menus incorporating organic and local ingredients which are all cooked from scratch using fresh ingredients, using a wide range of flavours, textures and colours in their cooking to make eating meals fun and enjoyable. This is essential as what children eat at an early age, determines their choices and eating patterns in later life.
We can accommodate all dietary and cultural requirements including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free & nut free.
Breakfast is not included in the fee for children in the pre-school rooms, however if your child is starting early at nursery (before 8.30am) we are happy to give them their breakfast. Just bring along the breakfast, such as cereal in an airtight container, labelled with your child’s name, for us to store at Nursery. We will provide cow’s milk for the cereal.
Snacks & Drinks
Snacks are provided mid-morning and mid-afternoon as part of the nursery fee. The mid-morning snack consists of different fruits and for the afternoon snack items such as raw vegetables, cheese, breadsticks, crackers, and houmous are provided. Water, apple juice, squash and milk are provided as drinks.
