Our nursery meals are freshly cooked on site by our full-time cook and run on a four week rotational menu, to maintain variety and ensure a good range of healthy nutritional meals and snacks.
We are constantly striving to improve quality and standards and our menus are regularly reviewed and updated.
*We are proud that following our unannounced spot checks by South Derbyshire District Council’s Environmental Health Department, we are consistently achieving an annual ‘5 star’ (scores on the doors) rating for our health, hygiene, kitchen processes, standards and documentation.*
We are also proud that we were awarded an ‘OUTSTANDING’ rating by OFSTED during our unannounced inspection on October 20th 2011 for ‘The extent to which children adopt healthy lifestyles!.
Ofsted quote was:
‘Through discussions, parents speak extremely highly of the nursery’s approach to caring for their child’s individual needs and many are complementary about the nursery’s healthy menu and how their children really enjoy the food!’
Our Full time cook is also the 1st in the whole of Derbyshire to complete and receive her certificate following a newly revised training programme by the NHS Health Promotion unit, for Nutrition in the under 5 yr olds !!
Although due to the new inspection framework individual elements are not now awarded, we are consistently praised by Ofsted for these elements.
