Childcare Centre

Children have their meals in their rooms where an optional prayer is said before eating. The children are encouraged to eat together in a relaxed social atmosphere. Our menu works on a four-week rota ensuring a variety of meals that are balanced and nutritious. All our food is prepared from the finest fresh produce prepared by our highly qualified in-house chef. We can cater for every child’s individual needs from special diets to vegetarian and our babies meals can be blended or finely chopped.

Snack time is organized into our day both morning and afternoon. Within the 2-5 year rooms the children have a 40 minute rolling snack period where they are able to help themselves to snack when they are ready, this time enables the children to try healthy snacks and new tastes. At snack time a drink of milk or water is offered. Water is also always available throughout the day in all rooms.
