What to bring

  • Lunchbox with food for morning and/or afternoon tea and lunch
  • Drink bottle with water
  • Bottles made up with formula
  • Cot sheet/blanket/comforter

We provide a late afternoon snack, and will often cook a meal with the children to eat.

Benefits of bringing a lunch from home:

  • You can control what your children eat and minimise allergy issues
  • Children can be fussy eaters and will often eat more from a lunchbox from home with familiar food they like
  • Keeps the fees affordable for already stretched families
  • We are able to invest more resources back into the centre, providing quality early childhood education and care for your child
  • Eating from your own lunchbox is good preparation for school.
