Little minds, Little bodies. Big Potential.
Our centre passionately believes that good nutrition plays a vital role in children’s physical and mental development in early childhood. In fact, it’s our Philosophy.
The best start to life is a nutritional one!
Most children form lifelong eating patterns by the time they reach school age, so it’s a huge responsibility to guide children towards sound food habits, which includes sustainability practices by growing some of our own food and sourcing local produce. This culture towards food will help to maintain good health in the long term.

How is this possible?
We achieve this by having our local accredited Nutritionist Carla Mcinnes, approve our creative, mindful and nutritious menus that have been made up by our very own educators and families for our service. Our menus are made up of a 4-week rotating seasonal menu that meets children’s needs, taking into account nutritional and energy requirements as well as cultural and health needs. We have a full-time cook who works in a modern on-site open kitchen, to freshly prepare daily, all of the children’s delicious meals. This includes vegetables grown by our Li’l Achievers in our vegetable gardens. The children are encouraged to watch the cooking process and even become involved in the preparation of meals.
