We have a kitchen in both buildings. We are a nut free, egg free centre and strive to meet the nutritional needs of all the children in the centre regardless of their dietary needs.
Our cook provides the children with healthy homemade meals and baking. We routinely update our menus to give the children new and varied options for their meals. We endeavour to cater for all allergies and meal requirements where possible. Our baking is mostly dairy free and if dairy is used there is a dairy free alternative available for the children. We buy Halal chicken and lamb mince. We provide a separate nutritional meals for those children who have special dietary requirements if we cannot offer something that is the same.
The location of the main kitchen in the preschool room allows the children to be involved in baking experiences and provides children with free access to water throughout the day. It also allows for parents in the preschool room to be able to stop in and talk with our Cook and for the children to feel connected to her as they are secure in the knowledge that she is always close at hand.
