Partnership with Parents
Since we know that parents are a ‘child’s first and most enduring educators’ we have a sincere commitment to working cooperatively with you. Forming a partnership with you is essential for us to plan effectively for a child’s care, learning and development. The two-way sharing of information is key to this. The nursery team welcomes parent as partners and endeavours to build a relationship upon trust and understanding.
It is important that we, as secondary educators, are able to support parents in an open and sensitive manner. Opportunities for talking to you about your child’s development take place on an almost daily basis. We wish to ensure that you are an integral part of the care and early learning team within the nursery. We involve you from the very beginning of the admissions process, settling-in, daily chats, to sharing of resources and social events. And, continue to update you through our Day share and Tapestry online learning journals.

We understand the fundamentals of food and nutrition. Like you, we believe that a healthy and balanced diet is essential to every child’s development and growth. We create healthy eating habits and instil an early appreciation of foods from around the world. Under the meticulous supervision of our experienced Nursery Chef, our menus have been purposely devised with this in mind. Our menus rotate on a 3 weekly cycle, they are modified to include and meet individual dietary needs, parental preferences and the various stages of weaning.
Seasonal produce is sourced to make our meals varied and interesting throughout the year! We include servings of fresh fruits and vegetables at each snack time and with each meal, protein-rich foods such as chicken, fish and lentils are part of the daily offer too! Food and healthy lifestyles are part of our daily teaching and learning with children, our kitchen is intentionally situated in our toddler room to allow for a sensory experience as little minds begin their discovery of food glorious food!
