Health and Wellbeing
Children at Redwood Childcare are introduced to the concepts of health, hygiene and safety along with the importance of diet, rest, sleep and exercise.
Food for Thought
Here at Redwood Childcare, we love having our nursery full of happy, healthy children bursting with energy and vitality and we believe that the quality of food we serve has an essential part to play. We are committed to serving healthy, balanced and nutritious foods that give your child all of the energy they need for a busy day of play, learning and development. Our nursery menus are carefully planned and freshly prepared by our cook, in consultation with the appropriate nutritional guidelines and offer children opportunities to experience different foods and develop healthy eating patterns. We use local suppliers ensuring fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and meats are always on the menu. In addition to a balanced lunch, our children are also offered a morning and afternoon snack; weekly menus are displayed in the reception area.
We make every effort to make mealtimes fun and an opportunity to learn key skills and food etiquette – setting the table, serving themselves, sharing conversation and clearing away afterwards. If your child has any special dietary needs based on medical/allergy conditions, religious, or cultural requirements, just let us know and we will be happy to discuss this with you and cater for your child’s needs.
Outside play is an extension of the nursery playrooms, providing a healthy, safe and stimulating environment for each child. The outdoors offers endless opportunities to explore and investigate the nursery’s natural surroundings. The nursery has two large safe and secure gardens with a variety of equipment such as a mud kitchen, a chute, playhouse and water tables. The children can play with sand and water, as well as the many other activities which can be transferred from inside to outside.
Sleep / Rest
Each playroom offers a cosy and comfortable area where children have the space to take some quiet time away from the group if required. Cots and sleep beds are available for any child who requires a sleep throughout their busy day. Our youngest babies have a dedicated sleep alcove located within the baby room to provide them with a calm sleep environment.
