Children have free access to their water bottles, so please ensure that they bring a named bottle every session they attend. This should only contain plain water. Juice, squash or flavoured water is not permitted and will be actively discouraged.
During snack time, children will be offered fresh fruit and toast so you do not need to provide additional snacks.
Thanks to government subsidies, every child under five years old is entitled to receive free milk under the Government's Nursery Milk Scheme every day they attend nursery. We will register your child for their daily entitlement of fresh milk, so please let us know if you DO NOT wish your child to have milk whilst they are at nursery.

For children attending a full day session, we kindly ask parents/carers to provide a healthy, well balanced and nutritious lunch for their child. Please ensure that all lunch boxes are named.
More information about the importance of a healthy lunch can be found at:
A hot school lunch can be ordered for children attending a full day session at a cost of £2.50 per meal. If you child only attends a morning or afternoon session and you would like to include lunchtime (from 11.45am - 12.15pm) with their session, this can be arranged (subject to availability) at a additional cost of £2.50 per child, per day. Please note that you would also need to provide a packed lunch or order/purchase a hot school lunch for your child.
We have a designated lunchtime supervisor and there is always at least one member of the teaching team supporting the children during lunch time. During the Autumn and Spring terms the children eat their lunch in nursery. In the summer term, we join reception children eating lunch in the school hall.
Snack and lunch times are a really important part of our daily routine as they reflect the principles of the EYFS just as much as the rest of the day and we promote meal times as an opportunity for learning. It is a time for calm, social interaction in which we encourage good eating habits that will hopefully set the pattern for a child’s future relationship with food.
During snack and lunch times children develop their sense of community within the nursery as they are expected to sit down together at tables whilst eating. They will also develop an awareness of their own needs regarding eating and hygiene and will learn to be independent when washing their hands before and after eating. Children will also learn and develop social skills by enjoying being with and talking to other children and the staff.
