Young active children need nutritious food at regular intervals throughout the day. We therefore provide a mid-morning and mid afternoon drink with snack for the children during the sessions.
If your child is arriving before 08.00a.m. a breakfast can be provided on request. A hot nursery lunch is provided at 12.00 noon (£2.50) and a choice of hot or cold tea at 04.00p.m. (£1.20) on request.
All snacks and meals are prepared on the premises by our own cook so that we are able to use only the best fresh locally sourced ingredients as well as keeping salt and sugar content to a minimum. We are very aware of the different allergies that young children may have or develop such as dairy or gluten intolerance, so by preparing and producing our own meals we can ensure that only the correct ingredients are used for each child’s needs. Menus are on display in the main entrance area and the baby room.
Young babies will need to bring in either breast or formula milk. Mums are very welcome to breast feed their babies in the privacy of the baby room.
When babies are ready to begin weaning, discussions between yourself and your baby’s keyworker will be necessary to provide a consistent approach for your child.
Crockery and Cutlery
The Nursery has complete sets of crockery, cutlery and bibs for use at meals for both children and babies.
