Healthy Eating

Home cooked food made fresh everyday using the best local ingredients

All food is prepared from fresh every day in each nursery. Healthy eating is an important part of our philosophy. We employ dedicated cooks to prepare nutritious and balanced menus for all babies and children throughout the week. All meals are freshly prepared each day using a variety of fresh ingredients.

Fresh fruit and drinks are always available. Meal times are a social occasion where staff and children enjoy their breakfast, lunch and tea together in a relaxed environment. Older children are encouraged to develop good manners, serve themselves and pour their own drinks.

All meat is sourced from Mackens’  award winning butchers in Chiswick.  All their meat is Free Range, naturally fed, and outdoor reared.  Their beef is Aberdeen Angus Beef. All eggs are Free Range

Fresh Organic Fruit is given twice a day morning and afternoon, and changes depending on what is in season and is supplied by Abel & Cole. Tinned fruit is in natural juice and Beans are low salt sugar variety.

A vegetarian alternative is on offer each day.

We will try to use seasonal fruit and vegetables where possible.

We are a nut free nursery. We are able to cater for specific dietary needs

Selection of seasonal vegetables and fruit puree available for babies.

The Importance of Tummy Time for Babies

Published: 

Babies need time spent on their tummies it helps them to develop their back and neck muscles needed for future movement. Babies who are laid on their backs all day do not get a chance to develop these crucial muscles in the same way. Regular tummy time works to increase babies' movement skills and confidence needed for crawling and also helps to develop their coordination and balance and babies that engage in regular time on their front each day are generally able to roll, crawl, sit, stand and walk earlier than babies that do not.

Testimonials

I feel that the nursery has been extremely supportive of my son's development and his areas of weakness, working together to achieve the same goal.

The staff are very friendly, helpful and I'm sure all the children past and present will never forget them. My daughter has a particularly good relationship with many of the staff members from across the board and always comes home with stories about all the fun stuff she got up to in the day. The girls are very good role models for her and I absolutely love them and all too pieces. They not only care for the children but I can see their genuine interest in the children's well being is at their core. This makes me feel at ease dropping her off as I know she will be treated equally and fairly at all times. My daughter has a very specific diet and when requested, the staff were happy to facilitate her dietary needs which I found to be amazing as not every establishment would be so accommodating

Both my Daughters aged 18 months and 3 1/2 have settled really well in the nursery thanks to the loving and caring staff. I always found everyone to be very friendly and welcoming. I know my daughters are well looked after and kept busy with lots of activities. My 3 year old particularly enjoys ballet, forest school and soft play. She has really thrived here and learnt to count to 20 and recognises a few letters. Very happy with the nursery overall and would highly recommend it.
