Garden House Nursery Schools


Nutrition and meal times are important in any nursery setting as they provide a framework over which to structure the day. At Garden House Nursery Schools our meal times an essential part of learning and development. Children are encouraged to serve their food, eat with a knife and fork and clear away when they have finished. This supports their developing independent skills, builds their confidence and self-esteem.

As a Nursery School we do our best to provide a wonderful environment for children, by having a lovely setting, an exciting curriculum, friendly happy team and good hearty food.
