My child’s diet is important to me, what can I expect?

It is important to us too. We will provide a balanced menu of home cooked meals. If your child has a dietary requirement, please discuss this with your key person when starting, to ensure we can accommodate their dietary needs accordingly.

Will my child be able to experience day trips?

Yes, some of the best learning happens during field trips and we hope to build a really great reputation for the quality of our off-site trips. To view our current parent programme that lists the trips, please click here.
