Our dedicated cook provides our children with a nutritionally
balanced diet and carefully plans all meals. We are
always happy to cater for specialist dietary needs,
and all meals are served in a separate dining area.
Meal times are an important aspect of developing children's
social skills. We aim to make these times as enjoyable
as possible, whilst maintaining excellent table manners
and hygiene standards. We actively encourage teeth cleaning
after each meal.
Menus are displayed around the nursery with copies
available on request.
Outings are a regular part of our nursery day. Your
childcare agreement gives us permission to take your
child on outings. You will be advised of intended visits
in advance, to enable you to let us know if you prefer
your child not to attend a particular event. Staffing
ratios are maintained at all times and hired transport
with protective seatbelts and the necessary insurance
is always provided.
We provide painting aprons and bibs but we do ask that
you send your child with a spare set of clearly labelled
clothes. Seasonal clothing such as sun hats, sun cream,
raincoats and wellies should be brought in to nursery
when required. We actively encourage outdoor play in
the most part.
It is always advisable to keep children who are unwell
at home in order to reduce the risk of infection. However,
if a child becomes unwell whilst at the nursery according
to nursery policy, we will take them to casualty or
call your GP if we are unable to contact you and feel
this is necessary. All medication is administered under
strict controls, and is kept safely away from children.
