Our menu

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 on the nursery premises. Once children are approximately 6 months old, they can start being introduced to the nursery menu. We also provide 1/3 pint of cow’s milk to all children in the nursery daily 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, develop social skills and to encourage good table manners.

T has loved being at Jack In The Box, she has made new friends, her confidence has grown, she has been nurtured and cared for so well in this environment. She always comes home with stories of the dancing, singing and letter of the day. 

I have felt confident from the start that the staff are experienced, well trained and very caring. The nursery is excellent at communicating with me and also offers the flexibility I have needed in order to work. 

Anna has been an outstanding keyworker. She has been the perfect person for T to develop a bond with, especially in the early days of her starting at the school.

I have also been particularly impressed with Lee and her management style. Clear communication is one of her key strengths which we rely on as parents. 

You have brilliant staff and a lovely range of resources necessary for development. I have really appreciated the BHFT fee rate as this has helped me immensely.  

I have already recommended the nursery to some of the families I work with in the area. 

Keep doing what you are doing.  Thank you for taking such great care of my daughter in the time she has spent with you.
