At Pinecones Day Nursery we offer your child healthy, varied and home cooked meals on a daily basis. This includes breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks in between. All of our meals are prepared and cooked on site by our chef Penny.
Penny works wonders in our fully equipped on site kitchen providing meals from scratch including homemade breads, soups, roast dinners and more. Our weekly food menu is displayed in each of our nurseries and is rotated on a three weekly basis offering a Summer and Winter menus.
We can cater for any preferences and dietary requirements that your child may have and are always on hand to help and support introducing new foods and textures.
Meals are served by the children during a social meal time, children set the table and clear away after themselves and are taught those all so important table manners. Our children use real ceramic plates and cutlery as they would at home or in a restaurant to provide them with those vital skills to take care of things and understand that items break and we have to handle precious things in a certain way. The practitioners are on hand to support throughout all meal times and ensure positive role modeling is taking place at all times.
We are proud to say that Pinecones have a 5 star food hygiene rating which is the highest achievable. We have yearly inspections to check we are complying with all food hygiene rules and regulations.
Our boy has been at the nursery for 15 months, joining just before his 2nd birthday. He loves going and talks about his friends and the staff all the time. I've noticed children upset about being left however the motivated and dedicated staff deal with the leaving process sympathetically and caringly. The nursery is professionally run and operates a special relationship with Parents to encourage parental involvement and interaction with the child's needs. The nursery is conveniently located - parking is easy - and has nice, modern, secure outside play area.
