Our Healthy Lifestyle Policies.

We promote a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle by guiding your child to make healthy choices. We believe that this foundation will support a lifetime of well-being.

We’re proud to be one of only a handful of childcare providers in the North East to have been awarded the Healthy Foundation Award.

Freshly-prepared, nutritious food

Our creative, in-house catering team, led by our experienced chef, provide balanced and nutritious meals. Meal and snack menus include plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat. Many of our meals include dairy, or dairy substitute ingredients such as soya, to support the high calcium needs of young children.

Fun fitness activities

We promote exercise as a fun part of our weekly routine. Whether it be indoors, outdoors or off-site, your child is sure to look forward to our regular exercise activities. He or she will also enjoy regular visits from our specialist partners, such as children’s fitness guru ‘Kids R Fit’.
