Snacks

At Moulton Nursery School & after School Club, snack time and lunch time is family time. It is an amazing opportunity to engage in conversations wih children and form strong relationships. During this important time a member of staff sits on a table with a small group of children, snacks are prepared by the children themselves this encourages physical capabilities, communication and language and relationship building. We feel this approach is why we have such a close relationship with all of the children at the setting. It's a valuable time and we treasure it.

 

Of course we have a lot of hungry children who have been using all of their energy playing and exploring, so providing a healthy snack to help recharge those batteries is also essential. We like to encourage children to make their own choices to develop their independence, so provide a variety of options on a tray for them to take and prepare themselves. We are more than happy to cater for children with dietry needs and allergies, just let us know when you book in.
