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.
The most positive experiences for M were building a strong relationship with her key worker and becoming more confident and independent.
For me, it has been the consistency of staff and always being kept informed.
Louise - can't thank Louise enough for all her help, from the moment I rang Little Dragons in tears looking for a replacement nursery, Louise has been absolutely amazing in making every step of the application/induction/viewing a breeze. She is not only amazing at the admin side but is always so friendly and caring towards all the children. M will miss her LOU-LOU. Kirsty - the most caring person and patient key worker I have come across, M can be a handful, demanding but Kirsty has worked with us to improve M's behaviour. She has seen the potential and the ability M has to succeed and has helped her develop those skills. Thank you for all you have done Kirsty x
I always speak highly of Little Dragons and my friends' son will be starting in September.
