At Grange Montessori Nursery the Child comes first. Our aim is to ensure that the children in our care are happy and content; we believe this is achieved through a daily routine that provides structure and diversity to their day. This regular consistency instills trust; the children recognize the order of events in their day and take comfort knowing their meal and sleep times.
Each child has a daily dairy that documents the activities they have been involved in and what foods they ate. For the smaller children we also record sleep times, nappy changes and liquid intake.
Routines remain flexible to accommodate a child’s varying individual needs. Sleep and meal times always reflect the needs of the child and wishes of the parent. The structure of the day will allow the children to access a variety of different activities which are indoor or out in the fresh air.
We recognize the significance of nutritious and balanced meals from a variety of different cuisines that encompasses plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, meat and poultry whilst catering for special dietary requirements. Our on-site Nursery Chef prepares fresh meals daily. Menus are displayed in the nursery and rotate every 4 weeks and change seasonally.
Daily eating at Nursery is a social occasion where children learn about healthy eating and what benefits it has for their well-being. They learn how to serve themselves and lay the table for others, life skills and knowledge that will become second nature.
