Healthy Eating

As the saying goes - you are what you eat. Healthy eating is vital for a child’s growth and development. We prepare simple, healthy and nutritious food to help promote your child’s development.

We have successfully achieved the Gold Healthy Choice Award for the last seven years.

Meal Times

It is important for mealtimes to be calm, enjoyable and sociable occasions. We will use this time to help develop the children’s social and conversational skills as well as table manners.

We offer breakfast, lunch and tea along with healthy snacks and water during the day.
