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.

The most positive experience for L has been socialising with the same age children, Being the second child she learns everything from her older sister but it's nice to have the same age children to play with where she doesn't feel 'little' or 'inferior'.
I just like the way you generally treat children & the routine you introduce really works for us and we adopted it at home as well.
