Food & Nutrition

We base our programming on the new Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This framework focuses on your child’s learning based on your child’s interests and abilities.

Breakfast

All children are required to have had breakfast before arriving at the centre. However, if your child is arriving before 7.00am, you can bring a healthy breakfast with your child (cereal, toast or yoghurt).

Morning / Afternoon Tea / Lunch

Natural Elements Eaglebly supplies Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea. These meals are included as part of your normal fees. We pride ourselves on providing children with good whole-food nutrition that is prepared onsite daily. This is great news for parents as they do not have to pack meals for their children. Parents can still supply a drink bottle, and milk/formula will still need to be supplied for the little ones.

Food Schedule

Morning Tea

Progressively served from 9:30 – 10:30am

Afternoon Tea

Progressively served from 2:00 – 3:00pm

Late Snacks

Snacks are given to children still in the centre between 4.30pm and 5.30pm if required. If you have a recipe that your child likes, we would be more than happy to provide this where possible.

Lunch

Progressively served from 11:00 – 12:00pm Children are encouraged to have a rest/sleep between the hours of 12:00 – 2:00pm. Quiet activities are set up for children when they wake or finish having a rest, such as reading, drawing and play-dough. Sleep times are variable for individual requirements and younger babies who have varying sleep patterns. Kindy children only sleep if requested by the parents. The centre will provide them with a bed.

Parent Morning Days

Lunch

Parents are always welcome to help in various aspects of the centre, including Parent helper mornings for any parents that would like to participate in craft mornings, cooking afternoons and be involved in the parent committee to review our policies, procedures etc. We are always looking for parents who have a talent they may want to share with the children in the centre. We also like to invite parents to the centre for Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Grandparents Day, Easter Bonnet day and the end of year Christmas party.
