Meals & Food

At Maples Day Nursery we offer your child breakfast, tea and snacks in-between (all you need to do is supply a healthy packed lunch). 

Our food is fresh and prepared on site and runs to a 3 weekly menu which is displayed on the notice board outside the kitchen.

If your child needs a specialised diet for any reason we can cater for them no problem!

Meals are served in the main nursery and every child is encouraged to use the cutlery provided and interact with the other children. The food is presented in serving bowls for each individual table so the children can self-select. We rarely have leftovers. We are proud to say we have a food hygiene rating of 5 stars (the highest anyone can get) and love to see full bellies and empty plates.

 

I cannot fault Pebbles in any way shape or form. My daughter has been going to Pebbles since summer 2014 and she loves it! The staff changes which took place approx 1 year ago have significantly improved the nursery and I think the Ofsted report reflects the hard work and dedication of the staff. All team members are fully engaged and you can genuinely tell they have real affection for the children that attend - my daughter certainly has a soft spot for her key worker. They provide a fun and secure setting for my daughter and provide healthy and nutritious meals, courtesy of their amazing cook with the odd treat when its someones birthday. I also like that the staff consistently keep me up to date with my daughters progress whether that's when I go to collect her or through Tapestry. Nothing is too much trouble even if I'm asking the same questions. I feel involved in my daughters attendance and what is going on whether its an up and coming event such as Sports Day or a quick catch up. I love knowing that my child is happy for the time she is at Pebbles and genuinely feel that she will miss it terribly come September 2016 but I also feel that her readiness to start 'big school' is mostly down to the amazing staff. I genuinely cannot praise the girls there enough. When we were having a few toddler hiccups, my daughters key worker took the time to sit down and discuss some things we could try both at nursery and at home. The improvement although wasn't an overnight fix, the longer term outcome has been extremely positive. If anyone is looking for childcare, I would strongly and highly recommend you make an appointment with the team at Pebbles, you won't regret it and I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done for my child for the past 18 months or so.
