Special dietary requirements
Parents are required to complete the registration and settling forms explaining clearly any dietary needs their child may have. These may need to be re-visited when moving rooms to check if there have been any changes. Individual dietary needs are recorded on a central list for ordering the meals, and also on a board in the eating areas where the food is served. Parents are required to put any dietary requirements into writing, directed to the nursery manager.

Water and other drinks
Children under threes are encouraged to bring in their own bottle to keep in their rooms. The over three’s have water facilities available for them to freely access independently– and are therefore accessible at all times.

Adults are provided with facilities for making hot drinks, which can only be accessed away from the children during their given lunch break and tap water is available at all times.


We believe, if you eat good you feel good and we take pride in serving nutritious, well balanced meals to the children that attend. Take a look at a sample menu, menus change as produce and seasons change. All staff are aware of the approach to all aspects of food and nutrition within the nursery and we encourage children to develop good eating habits and social interaction during meal times. Meals, snacks and drinks are provided throughout the day, this includes Breakfast, Lunch and Tea alongside a morning and afternoon snack aswell as milk and water.
