The Nursery provides breakfast, mid-morning and afternoon snacks plus a nutritious and wholesome lunch.
Children in the Rainbow Room can access their cafe throughout the morning at times of their own choosing; this helps to support their own independence.
Children in the Bumble Bee room join together for meals and snacks to make these times sociable as they can engage with both their peers and the staff.
We feel that lunchtime is a very important part of nursery life; the communal feel of the Rainbow Room café and the communal lunch in the Bumblebee room help the children gain valuable interpersonal and social skills.
We give careful planning to the menus using the guidelines laid down by the Children’s Food Trust and the Food Standards Agency. All food is home cooked daily using fresh ingredients where possible.
Full details of any food intolerances or allergies are recorded as part of the registration process and all members of staff are trained to follow the stringent procedures for each allergy. If necessary we will ask you to seek medical advice from your child’s GP so that we have sufficient knowledge of the allergy.
Children are encouraged to eat fresh fruit every day.
All children have access to drinking water throughout the day.
