A healthy child is a happy Child!
Healthy, nutritious food enhances important aspects of a child’s development, including social, cultural and educational.
Eating habits and a child’s relationship with food is developed in the early years. We believe that a key responsibility of our Educators is to foster healthy food habits, which will help children maintain a healthy weight and good health throughout their lives.
Our fresh, seasonal menu, which rotates every 4-weeks, reflects this food philosophy. We also encourage parents to share meal ideas, and cultural needs or dietary restrictions can be discussed with Educators anytime.
Water is available at all times for children.
Breakfast: from 6:30am
Morning tea: 9:00am
Lunch: from 11:00am
Afternoon tea: 3:00pm
Late snack: from 5:45pm
