Learning Together Every Day

Our Kitchen

We provide children with morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, snack and drinks in accordance with the Nutrition Australia guidelines, which promotes healthy eating for young children. Through the meals that are offered we aim to provide 50% of a child’s daily requirements whilst in care.

We support children who have specific mealtime requirements with consultation between our cook, families and other professionals is required.

We support breastfeeding for infants and ask that families provide either breast milk or formula to support their child’s nutrition needs.
