Medium Term Plan

The Spring Half Term Plan is attached with this newsletter. The Theme for this half term is All around the world. The medium plan supports weekly planning to ensure all areas of development are being promoted each week.

Healthy Eating

To start a new year we want to encourage healthy eating across the nursery. We offer a range of healthy snacks at snack times and incorporate healthy eating discussions into our everyday routine. A healthy meal can positively effect children’s behaviour and development.

To support us with our healthy eating at nursery we ask parents to provide healthy lunch boxes which include fruit and vegetables and limit sugary snacks. For more information about healthy lunchboxes you can visit

Nursery offer healthy cooked dinners for £2 a day provided by NN Caterers a 5 Star Catering Company. You can find the weekly menu in the entrance. Please confirm in writing if you are interested in booking these meals. If you would like any more information please speak to a member of staff.
