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.
H has been able to play with new toys/activities and be surrounded by children and lovely staff members. We are moving away from the area, we are very sad that we have to move her nursery.
I love hearing about H's day when I pick her up, she looks so comfortable with all of the staff especially Kirsty. Kirsty has been fabulous, she has really taken her time with H and H adores her. Kirsty has gone above and beyond for H. We know that she gets very attached to people and we are lucky that we have had Kirsty and all of your lovely staff members to look after her.
The nursery is very reasonably priced and we have been really happy with her care and all communications. I have already recommended the nursery to other friends and colleagues.
Thank you so much for everything. Unfortunately we have unexpectedly had to move locations but if we hadn’t we would have been very happy for H to stay at the nursery.
