As part of our nurturing approaches and keeping with our centres vision, values and aims for all our families our lunch and snack delievery is based on the principals of the Swedish Pre-School Model. Lunch/snack time for all children is a nurturing experience where we endeavour to deliver lunch/snack to the children in a more home like environment. Children are encourgaed to develop their independance, self help skills, confidence and social skills. We do this by supporting children to help set the table for lunch, serve themselves their food and help others. Serving themselves their lunch/snack ensures children make healthy choices, discuss food and develop their conversational skills with others. The atmosphere of this lunch/snack time approach is very relaxed and at a pace suited to individual needs of the children. We develop this further by involving parents in our lunchtime programme – “Come Dine with Me”
We provide a selection of fruit at snack time along with milk or water to drink. Water is available throughout the day and drinks are always given following any physical exercise. Please let us know if there are any foods that your child should not have.
We are a NUT FREE centre.
As of August 2021, all edible 2 year old children are entitled to a hot lunch. All other children are able to bring in a packed lunch.
Please see the nursery lunch menu above for August 2021-October 2021
Please speak to a member of staff should your child have a medically prescribed diet or require a vegetarian option, as you are required to complete either a medically prescribed diet request form or a lifestyle form.
