Tasty Menus

Check our new menus, freshly prepared and tasty.

We promote healthy eating and prepare wholesome meals. The meat and vegetables are sourced locally and when possible we use our own vegetables grown by the children. We have a cafe-style snack system mid-morning and mid-afternoon where the children help themselves to a variety of fresh fruit, salad, vegetable, milk and water. Water is accessible throughout the day.

We take great care to provide children with nutritious and wholesome food, prepared by fully qualified professionals. We also plan our daily menus to include fresh and varied options that are suitable for each age group. Naturally, we also cater for all individual dietary needs.

Our menus are produced under the guidance of a registered Dietician who has many years of experience of working in the childcare industry and with day nurseries.

Meal-time in the Baby Unit is a perfect relationship-building opportunity for child and carer. Our specialist staff always ensure that the type, consistency and portion size is just right for your baby.

For our 2 – 5-year-olds we see meal times as an important opportunity for social interaction and a tool for building confidence and independence.

We understand that mealtimes are an important part of life and a good opportunity for children to learn about taking turns, table etiquette – and enjoying the social occasion.
