Our cafe style snack time (offered morning and afternoon) is a great success with the children. A healthy snack is offered plus 1/3 pint milk or water. Please let us know if you required a special diet. Your child will be provided with a water bottle so they can access water at any time during the day.


Please help your child to participate in every activity by providing indoor shoes, a spare set of named clothing, raincoats and Wellington boots on wet days, and hats in the summer.
