At Daisy Nursery we know how important it is your child receives healthy, nutritious meals throughout the day. Our on-site cooks are professionally trained and design our traditional menus using seasonsal, fresh ingrediants ensuring your child receives the best quality possible. Below is an example of a weekly menu, we can also cater for any special diets your child may require. We work closely with parents at every step of the weaning process, and all our children are equipped with age and stage appropriate crockery, cutlery, chairs and highchairs. Meals are an important part of our day and children enjoy eating together and socialising at their dinner table. We encourage manners and promote independence, using serving dishes and jugs to foster conversation and the freedom of choice. We slip into maths when discussing sharing, "how many pieces are in that sponge and how many are left if we give one to you and a friend?" Our older children help with the clear up, learning to tidy their eating area and tuck in chairs. Click here for a sample menu
Policies and Procedures
We are very proud of our policies and procedures and are pleased they are challenging the industry's accepted standards. If you have any questions or queries about our policies, please don't hesitate to ask us.
We are also proud to employ a range of talented and qualified people working in our kitchens, our admin office and maintaining our facilities, to keep our nursery buildings and paperwork in top shape and our children full of delicious food. All our team members are employed using strict safer recruitment practises, and hold a clear and enhanced DBS.
Our senior leadership team comprises of our Quality and Training Manager, Claudia Padfield and our Operations Manager, Clare Canning. Both ladies have worked in our industry for years and are qualified Early Years Professionals; their extensive knowledge and wealth of experience supports and coaches our team members each and every day. For more information about their backgrounds and specific roles at Daisy Nursery please click on the adjacent daisy. The most important thing to know is, because both ladies are experienced and passionate practitioners at heart, you will often see them sharing a story in Pre-school, digging in the dirt with the Toddlers or enjoying a cuddle in Babies when they really should be marking an essay or chasing a late paying voucher company… but we wouldn’t have it any other way!
