Our nursery benefits from having our very own qualified Nursery Chef who prepares delicious and nourishing freshly cooked food. Our Chef is enthusiastic in consulting and involving our children in the kitchen; from providing taster sessions and introducing new meals, to including children in baking sessions and growing our own fruit and vegetables.
