Our nursery benefits from having our very own qualified Nursery Chef who prepares delicious and nourishing freshly cooked food. Our Chef is enthusiastic in consulting and involving our children in the kitchen; from providing taster sessions and introducing new meals, to including children in baking sessions and growing our own fruit and vegetables.
Our wholesome and nutritionally balanced 4 week rolling menus are specially designed to give your little one the very best start in life. We make this possible by supplying our children with home cooked nutritional food, bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables and all the essential ingredients necessary for healthy physical and mental development. Whenever possible we source our food locally and organically, including seasonal vegetables and fruit into our menus. Our children have a choice of milk or water to drink throughout the day.
We believe that meal-times should be a happy, relaxed time where children learn social skills, manners, good hygiene practise and healthy eating habits to last them a lifetime.
