We know that healthy minds go hand in hand with healthy bodies; to get the right things out you need to make sure you’re putting the right things in and that’s why we place so much importance on giving our children wholesome, nutritious snacks and meals. All our meals, as well as snacks, are included in our nursery fees. Our kitchen has been awarded the highest five star food hygiene rating.
We produce fresh meals every day and include foods from all cultural backgrounds, providing children with familiar foods as well as introducing them to new ones broadening their experiences of the wider world.
Education is key to our philosophy and it doesn’t stop at mealtimes. Our children are encouraged to be as independent as possible and are provided with cutlery dependent on their individual development, they are given free reign to do as much as they want whether that be making choices about what food they eat, pouring a drink, buttering toast or simply being enabled to feed themselves.
We believe that mealtimes should be social, happy times where new skills can be developed and new foods tasted and experienced.
Babies grow more rapidly in their first year than at any other time so we understand the importance of making sure they get the right amount of what they need to keep them healthy and happy.
We know babies need routine so you can rest assured we’ll follow whatever you do at home. We will even provide your choice of baby formula milk. We also store and prepare bottles of your expressed milk if you’re breast feeding. Alternatively we have a dedicated milk kitchen in our nursery.
When your baby is ready to start the exciting weaning period from milk to solids we can give you advice and ensure food at nursery echoes the experiences you are providing at home. Your baby will love entering a whole new world of taste.
Before a child joins us we identify any dietary needs and preferences, including any allergies. We always do our best to accommodate any specific dietary requirements and work closely with our parents to ensure every child is getting 100% of the nutrition they need whilst in our care.
We take care not to provide food containing nuts or nut products and are vigilant where we have a child who has a known allergy.
