Health and Well Being

At George Eliot Kindergarten, we take great pride in the physical health and well-being of our children at nursery. We provide high quality, local fresh food which is prepared daily on site reflecting mostly seasonal fresh produce. In our desire to utilise fresh ingredients and food options which are balanced, nutritious and adventurous, you will be very surprised how much care and attention we pay to creating menus which are truly unique to our nursery. We would go as far as to say – we do not believe you will find better food at any other setting locally.

We plan the menus to include international dishes and a vegetarian option each day and naturally we also cater for all individual dietary requirements.

We understand that meal times are an important part of life, and a good opportunity for children to learn about taking turns, table etiquette – and enjoying the social occasion
