Meal times are a very important part of the day and the nursery provides breakfast between 7.30am - 8.00am, a snack at 9.00am, lunch starting at 11.30am and tea at 3.15pm.
All meals are prepared freshly each day by the chef who is based in the nursery.
Children aged 10 months are introduced to morning snacks, afternoon teas and from 12 months they can have the nursery lunch. Until this time parents are required to provide all food. We do not offer this before because there are so many allergies that are not found until children are introduced to foods and it is safer to do this at home. We will also provide 1/3 pint of cows milk to all children daily in the nursery when they are over 12 months of age.
The children learn to develop their social skills by helping to lay the table and discussing their day over a well balanced meal.
The staff are encouraged to eat with the children to promote interaction, improve social skills and to encourage good table manners.

My daughter has enjoyed going to the park, visits from the firemen and similar activities that break the daily routine.
I loved the first summer fete when we joined and they had ponies! Christmas parties are also very nice. The best has been seeing A and her class performance of the Nativity, truly special for us and my family. Great job from Bluebell class!
I would recommend the nursery - both my kids have felt happy in the nursery throughout the years spent here and they really care for some members of the staff, they do a really good job educating them, teaching them and having fun with them!
