Food – Provision is made for the children to eat during the preschool session. Parents/carers are urged to provide children with healthy snacks and lunch which will enable the staff to assist in the development of lifelong healthy eating habits. All children will need their own drink bottle with water only. Please note: If we need to avoid certain foods due to allergies, we will send a note home to all parents.
MORNING TEA AND LUNCH ARE REQUIRED on Mondays and Tuesdays (Dolphins and Seahorses) and Thursdays and Fridays (Penguins and Turtles). On Wednesdays the children will only need to bring a snack for morning or afternoon tea. We suggest fruit, prepared ready for your child to eat. Lunch needs to be in a bigger named lunch box. It is a good idea to include an ice brick (child safe variety) during the warmer weather as children keep their lunches in their bags until it is time to eat. Please keep lunches healthy – a sandwich and a piece of fruit are ideal. Please do not send sweets, chips, cakes or sweet biscuits. You will find a small booklet titled “Food and Nutrition at Preschool” in your information pack. It contains a few healthy lunch ideas.
