We feel that it is important to promote a healthy lifestyle right from the start. We encourage children to play outdoors with lots of opportunities to develop both their bodies and their minds.
At each session children are offered a drink of milk, or chilled water and a “snack”, for which we ask for a contribution of 20p a day (£1 per week) Snack varies enormously, but is always healthy. It could be cheese or fruit – apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, etc. or raw vegetables – carrots, celery, sweet peppers, dips and bread sticks, or the children may make sandwiches, toast or warm bread from time to time. We ask you to contribute £1 a week for snack – payable via Parent Pay.
Educare is our afternoon Nursery provision. There is a £1.50 charge for lunch for all.
Those who are not eligible for 30 hours:
Playing outdoors is essential for young children, not just for their growing bodies, but for the development of their minds too. Outdoors they have opportunities for investigation, exploration, for creative experiences, for working together in imaginative play, for sharing and co-operation. We have waterproof waders for everyone, so that weather/water play is never a problem.
We try in every way to help children to understand the importance of looking after teeth and encourage all our children and families to follow our Healthy Teeth Policy. Sweets are discouraged even as birthday treats, as is pop and sugary juice.
