Healthy Living

Our programme facilitators work with families to deliver the healthy living message that is so central to our ethos.

Cooking

The family centre is well known in the area for the excellent cooking programmes we offer. These sessions give parents the opportunity to learn how to make nutritious meals for their families, even when on a tight budget.

Outdoor play

We have a safe, enclosed outdoor play area where you will find lots of colourful play equipment for babies and children. In all weathers, children have the opportunity to have fun outdoors on our pirate ship, in the playhouse and on our mini-bikes.

Gardening

We have a large allotment area where we grow many different types of fruit and vegetables which are used in our cookery sessions and in the home-cooked meals in the Day Nursery. We encourage children and their parents to get involved with gardening, working together to grow plants and vegetables. The children love digging, planting and watering, and take great pride in seeing the plants they have cared for grow and bear fruit.

Composting

We have a number of compost bins around the site that are used to recycle fruit and vegetable scraps from the Day Nursery kitchen. This nutrient-rich compost is then used in our allotment and on the flowerbeds around the site.
