Our nursery benefits from having our very own qualified Nursery Chef Diane who prepares delicious and nourishing freshly cooked food every day.
Our wholesome and nutritionally balanced 4 week rolling menus are specially designed to give your little one the very best start in life. We make this possible by supplying our children with home cooked nutritional food, bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables and all the essential ingredients necessary for healthy physical and mental development. Whenever possible we source our food locally and organically, including seasonal vegetables and fruit into our menus. Our children have a choice of milk (animal or plant based) or water to drink throughout the day.
We believe that meal-times should be a happy, relaxed time where children learn social skills, manners, good hygiene practice and healthy eating habits to last them a lifetime. Our Chef is enthusiastic in consulting and involving our children in the kitchen; from providing taster sessions and introducing new meals, to including children in baking sessions and growing our own fruit and vegetables. Diane, our nursery cook, has a passion for our planet and the animals that inhabit it. She does regular fundraisers for the WWF charity and Greenpeace. She has sponsored countless animals over the years and has received many awards for her fundraising work. Her certificates are proudly on show in our nursery dining room
