Guardian Early Learning Group plays an active role in enhancing your child’s nutrition with many centres preparing their own meals on-site each day comprising the freshest, seasonal ingredients and nutritionally balanced menus. Playdays Preschool and Long Day Care West Pennant Hills have embraced nutrition through their fantastic ‘garden to kitchen’ program led by their very own sustainability ambassador. Children can grow herbs and vegetables and harvest and use them in making their daily meals. The children often participate in the preparation of these meals enabling them to gain appreciation for where food comes from, the process of farm to plate, how food is prepared and the importance of healthy nutrition.
Variety is also important at all Guardian Early Learning centres with the use of a rotational system to keep menus fresh and appealing. Breakfast is provided for early starters, along with morning and afternoon tea, lunch and a late snack at the end of the day. Find out more about nutrition at Guardian Early Learning Centres here.
