Glorious Food

Each nursery has a in-house chef who implements our tradition of hearty and healthy home-cooked meals. Some of the meals that we serve in our settings have been parent-suggested and represent the vibrant cultures of our children and their families. From Spanish fish with potato and sweet corn stew to sweet-chilli chicken with rice and peas, the taste varies and meals are extremely nutritious. Additionally we are more than happy to cater to all cultural, religious and dietary requirements and we have menu options to reflect this.

The children at our nursery are served three meals per day* and are included in all fees that are paid for by parents ( grant places are for child care provision only, hence they incur a £2 a day charge for Lunch if lunch is booked) **.
