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.

This is our current menu
The children are leaving the nursery as the family are moving abroad permanently.
The positives for our children - the staff, the interaction with all the carers and management. The enthusiasm of management and the attention to detail of both children and knowing them so well.
The positives for us - seeing all the children at play in the gardens which are child friendly.
We feel that they nursery represents value for money. Whilst we were not subject to any of the NHS discounts, the costs we paid were very competitive.
We would recommend the nursery, as they say on the Talent Shows, “You have 4 yes’s”!!!
From the first visit to Kiddies, Cabin when selecting a nursery, we felt that it was the staff which set apart the KC from the other nurseries which we looked at. The enthusiasm and interaction with both children and parents was a positive experience and an environment that we were comfortable to leave both children in.
Three years on and we have not been disappointed with the selection. The facilities are purpose built and child friendly with two outdoor areas which can be used most of the year. We have no hesitation with recommending Kiddies' Cabin.
