Children are provided with nutritious and well balanced meals, including breakfast, lunch and tea, all prepared on the premises by our own chef.


The mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks provide an opportunity for children and staff to sit together and socialise.

We regularly review and change our menu to suit the time of year to enable us to use seasonal fruit and vegetables in our meals. To view our sample menu please click on the link below
