At Rising Stars Nursery we pride ourselves on the quality of nutritious snacks and meals provided on a daily basis. Due to current Covid governance guidance our hot lunch option provided by Zebedee's is not available. Therefore for you child's main lunch meal you will be required to provide your own packed lunch. Due to possible allergies we ask products containing nuts are not included in your child's lunch box and we encourage them to be healthy and nutritionally balanced as possible.
We encourage independence whenever possible. Examples of which are where the children (excluding the baby room) may choose and help prepare their own food for snack with supervision from a member of staff.
To ensure we meet the needs of the child, we request that all allergies and special dietary requirements are brought to the attention of staff at the time of enrolment. Should any health issues arise later, you are welcome to bring this to our attention at any time.
Special Treats: If parent/carers wish to bring in cake for their child's birthday this can be supervised and distributed by staff. Please be aware that we will only accept cakes that are in a sealed, manufacturer's container. Unfortunately we are unable to distribute cakes around the nursery that are home made.
A typical nursery day includes...
Breakfast: Children can choose from a selection of the following from the trolley: Weetabix, Cheerios, Rice Crispies, Cornflakes, Shreddies & yoghurt. Also bread and toast are available with any of the following toppings: butter, jam, marmite, lemon curd.

Staff are on hand to welcome parents/carers and their children. The children may choose from activities set out to welcome them.
