Every Day

Every day your child will receive a healthy nutritious and balanced meal

Play is one of the main ways in which children learn. It helps to build self worth by giving a child a sense of his or her own abilities and to feel good about themselves. Because it’s fun, children often become very absorbed in what they are doing. In turn, this helps them develop the ability to concentrate.

We have a very affordable pricing plan and you may qualify for 30 hrs free please ring us for further advice.
