We understand that being physically healthy is not simply about healthy nutritious food, but includes a clean and safe environment, mental stimulation, access to outdoor spaces and loving and trusting relationships.

Daily opportunities to play outside in the fresh air, learning about the world around them, including studying nature and the changing seasons and participating in all kinds of physical play, such as riding bikes, throwing and catching balls, and enjoying large group games with their peers, that require co-operation, listening skills and exercise.

Parents Support

For children who attend a full session with us, we would kindly ask parents to support our healthy messages by providing their children with a healthy packed lunch. Would parents also ensure they let us know if there child has any food allergies or for cultural reasons is not able to eat certain foods.

Our staff use the snack period to teach children about healthy lifestyles, often using appropriate story books and props to gain the children’s interest, whilst encouraging open discussions in respect of making the right choices for a healthy life.

Manners

We also promote good manners with the children, relaying to them the importance of saying please and thank you, and asking to leave the table, and tidying up their plates and cups.
