The ‘Dining Room’

Dinner is better when we eat together

We keep with the ethos of a home from home feel within our setting by enjoying all our meals together in our large dining room. Meals are prepared and cooked by our onsite chefs. 

Our dinner menu rotates on a 2 weekly basis and is different every day. We endeavour to include vegetables in every meal and an optional fruit snack for pudding, so your child gets at least 1 of their 5 a day.

Fresh water is always available throughout the day.

Milk and water are offered to the children at every meal and snack time.

Eating together develops the children’s personal and social skills. They establish a positive sense of themselves, and others, form positive relationships and develop respect for others, develop social skills and learn how to understand appropriate behaviour in groups. Our staff and older attendees of Mini VIPs model appropriate social skills to the younger children.
