As a team, we value the importance of healthy, nutritious and balanced food for children as it helps children to learn, play, and grow.  Our catered meals are made fresh by experienced chefs, appealing, and fun to eat.  They incorporate a variety of flavours, colours, and textures to encourage even the fussiest of eaters.  We believe that food and mealtimes provide valuable learning experiences and opportunities for children. 

We provide morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea, and a late snack for the children.  We use a combination of food provided by “Nurture Kids – Preschool Catering”, and food prepared by our on-site cook to supply our Centre with healthy, nutritionally appropriate, and appealing meals.  All allergies and special dietary options are catered for.  We can provide a full nutritional breakdown of all meals provided.  Below are the answers to some commonly asked questions about our meals. 

  • We choose to minimise using sugar wherever possible, instead using alternatives such as fruit, maple etc for sweetness. 
  • We use free range eggs. 
  • We provide vegetarian cheese. 
  • We use all Halal meat products. 
  • Our kitchen is nut free. 
  • We have options available for dairy free/gluten free/egg free/ vegetarian children.  We are also happy to discuss other specific requirements and allergies. 

The cost for this is included with your weekly fees.  Please ask to see a menu.  Daily menu’s will be displayed in the kitchen. 

 

Children arriving between 7:30am and 8:00am can have breakfast supervised at the Centre. Breakfast foods are supplied by parents/caregivers, along with any milk or Infant Formula required for drinking throughout the day.  We have a fridge available to parents to store milk.
