Our Long Day Care Centre provides interesting and nutritious lunches, morning and afternoon teas.  Our cook will develop menus to ensure that your child receives the required number of serves of each food group whilst in our care.  Details of these requirements are displayed alongside the menu plans on the notice board outside our kitchen.

If your child has special dietary requirements you are asked to inform our Centre so that we can make sure that your child’s needs are met.

We often have fun food days and occasionally have sausage sizzles for parents to attend a meal with their children.
