Babies and weaning:
The Nursery understands and respects that all babies and children develop differently and at different paces, and it can be a worrying and confusing time for parents/carers during this time. We aim to make this transition as smooth as possible by ensuring our key persons work closely with you to discuss any dietary requirements your child may have and make appropriate provisions to accommodate any additional needs parents may have. The introduction of new foods is a gradual process. For babies weaning from breast milk or formula, our nursery will steam, grill and puree fruit, meats such as chicken and fish, and vegetables at a consistency that is suitable for the baby's feeding needs. We will help babies become familiar with a great range of tastes and textures through to the beginning of self-feeding. Key persons will aim to help babies and toddlers progress toward solid food and encourage all children to experience a variety of different foods by creating opportunities for them to taste and feel different textures of food e.g. via food tasting activities.
Breast feeding and formula
We welcome parents who are breast-feeding their children into the nursery and make every effort to accommodate their needs. We can also accept breast milk that has been expressed and are able to store this milk as advised by the parent.
*30 hour funded children will be charged an additional fee of £2.50 for lunch.
