Mealtimes are a very important part of our day, when children and adults come together to eat. The tables are laid beautifully and music is played to create a calm atmosphere conducive to eating and interacting politely with each other, as a family around the table.
We are very proud of our cooking, offering your child healthy, nutritious, tasty meals and snacks. Our cook plans a variety of meals – breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks, which are changed frequently. The menu for the day is displayed for parents to see.
If you have any special requirements or wish to discuss your child’s eating habits with us, our cook will be happy to chat with you. We know how important it is to listen to parent’s to gain a better understanding about each child’s needs.
Due to the wide variety of formula milk available and the different preferences parents have for their babies, we ask that you provide your own milk. Naturally, we will welcome breast milk. These bottles will be clearly labelled with your child’s name on and placed in our fridge. Alternatively you can supply formula, which will be stored in our kitchen. We have a bottle prep machine and will feed your child according to his/her own needs as identified in their care plan. These bottles will be washed, but not sterilised and placed in your child’s locker for collection at the end of each day.
Once your baby is ready for weaning, we will invite you to come and discuss your requirements with our cook. Offering you healthy, freshly cooked food to be pureed.
