Snack and Lunch
Your child should bring a healthy snack with them every day in a named box. This should not contain any sweets, biscuits, nuts or juice. If they are staying all day they should also bring a packed lunch. Water and milk is provided
Your child will spend time in the garden every day so make sure they have a coat, scarf, wellies. In sunny weather your child should have a hat, suitable shoes for running about and climbing and you should apply sun cream before they come into the preschool.
If your child is still using nappies you must provide two new nappies, nappy sacks and wet wipes in a named bag each day.
Attach name labels to all items of clothing and belongings so they can be easily returned to you if they become separated from your child.
This page has information about the snacks we provide your child during the day. We have a snack table where your child can sit with their friends and eat a healthy snack. Your child will be shown how to collect a plate and a cup and take food that has been prepared, for example chopped fruit, small portion of pita bread, cucumber slices. The preparation of the food is an activity in it's self. Each day the teacher on snack table duty will invite a couple of children to sit with her and prepare the food for the class. You child will be encouraged to use a knife, fork and spoon. Sitting with a teacher and their friends the teacher talk to them about their snack, remind them of any rules they may have forgotten such as washing their hands before they eat, pushing their chair in when they leave the table and washing their plate and cup when they are finished.
