Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and five years of age.
The EYFS helps your child get ready for school and prepares them for their future learning and successes. All children’s early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun, secure and support their development, care and learning needs. Learn more about EYFS here.
We believe that a well balanced and nutritious diet should be available to each child daily. Therefore, our qualified chefs prepare homemade meals using only fresh ingredients.
Our Ilford nursery serves breakfast, lunch and tea, with additional refreshments and snacks throughout the day. Fresh drinking water is always available, as well as milk and diluted fruit juice.
We can cater to any special dietary needs, and a vegetarian option is always available. Find out more about Nutrition here.
