All of our pre-school staff are Food Safety Trained and have a good understanding of Healthy Eating. We provide food to suit each stage of weaning as your child grows, from pureed baby food moving on to mashed and lumpier options.
We encourage good table manners from an early age and make mealtimes as relaxed as possible to promote positive eating habits.
We have a top food hygiene rating and a Platinum Healthy Eating award. So you can feel assured that your child is eating healthy food in a hygienic environment.
