Menus will be changed weekly and displayed on the notice board. Any special dietary requirements should be discussed with the nursery manager. We endeavour to work with parents to provide a nutritionally balanced diet.

We order our food from a local caterer who has a four week rolling menu - displayed on our notice board.

All children will be provided with drinks (milk, squash, water) and light refreshments during their day at nursery. For children under one year old at nursery, we ask parents to provide their own food and formula milk until they are ready to take nursery meals and parents/carers have become aware of all allergies.

If you would prefer your child to bring a packed lunch and tea instead of eating nursery meals then please discuss this with the nursery manager. We regret that we cannot reheat food.

Staff will always be available to discuss any concerns you may have and we welcome parents visiting the nursery at any time during the day.
