At Tachbrook all children who attend full-time eat lunch whilst at school. Children can either bring a packed lunch from home or choose to have a hot meal. They sit in 'family style' small groups of about 6-8 children and a meal supervisor. The meal supervisor will help your child eat their lunch and encourage your child to try and taste foods provided.
Having lunch is an important part of the nursery day. Children will have lots of different experiences of eating. Some children will eat meals with their family at a table, others with siblings, some will eat with a spoon and others with their fingers etc. Our meal supervisors are experienced members of staff and will eat with the children modelling good eating habits. Parents are welcome to stay for your child's first lunch if you would like to.
Please see our 'Lunch policy' and what to put in a heathy packed lunch for more information. From time to time we may need to restrict foods from home dependent on allergies. If you have any concerns or would like to discuss staying for lunch further please speak to your child's key person.
