Little Dragons provides breakfast between 7.30am - 8.15am, snacks at 9.20am, lunch at 11.30am and afternoon tea at 3.30pm.
Our nursery cook, Sue provides a balanced diet for all children over the age of 1 and meals are freshly prepared on the premises each day. Parents of children aged under 1 year are asked to provide their own food and milk clearly labelled. We cater for children with special dietary needs including cultural and allergy related requirements. Our menus run on a four week rota and change seasonally as shown below.
Staff sit with the children during meal times and encourage good table manners - the correct way to hold their cutlery, saying please and thank you and appropriate social interaction such as talking quietly.

Sue Dennehey Sue has been the nursery cook since 2009 and holds current Food Safety certificates. She has consistently achieved the full 5 stars for the nursery kitchen from Reading Council’s Food Standard Agency.
Both my children have attended Little Dragons and both have really enjoyed their time with the nursery.
Lorna and Kirsty looked after them in the baby room and did a wonderful job of keeping me up to date with their development milestones and gave me every confidence that they could meet the individual needs of my children. They encouraged them and supported them to achieve small but significant goals independently which I feel is really important.
As my older child moved through the different rooms I felt reassured by the conscientious approach of other members of staff such as Michelle in the toddler room.
In summary I have been very happy with Little Dragons and love the consistency with staff. Thank you Little Dragons.
