At preschool we provide all children with healthy snacks during their attendance.

Each day children have choice of fresh fruit and milk or water, encouraging independence and choice for all.

Where your child has an allergy for example diary intolerance we will always provide alternatives that are suitable to meet their needs.

According to nutritionists, kids need to eat every three to four hours to meet their nutritional needs.
