Our Food Service

 Food preparation hours are 8.00am-midday   We have a comprehensive plan for safe food handling and we have achieved Outstanding in successive Food Safety Audits from an independent third party. 

 Our menu is based on the Australian Government Guidelines  

 

 

With food and meal times being central to many cultural, religious and social customs, we invite you to share with us your favourite recipes, ingredients and cooking styles.

 

 We would love to find out more about the significance of these with respect to cultural and religious customs. This might include the celebrations and ceremonies or singing and dancing. 

 

 Should you have any particular dietary requirements arising from health conditions or cultural influences or personal preferences we welcome the opportunity to discuss the nutritious options we can provide. 

 

Our menu changes every week with seasonal recipes. Meals are prepared fresh daily, including morning and afternoon tea, lunch and late snack for those children collected nearer to closing time. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The variety in our menu is achieved by including ingredients and mild flavours from around the globe. Dietary restrictions for allergies or personal choice are respected and we can provide nutritional substitutes. 

The exception is for infants, where we request parents to supply formula or milk substitutes if there is a brand or preference over cow’s milk.

Ordinarily we request no food is brought into the centre.  We are however always happy to help celebrate children’s birthdays.  For this we ask for parents to bring in a packet cake mix, or a cake that is prepared and packaged in a commercial kitchen with ingredients visible or available from the supplier.  Alternatively, with some notice for our cook the children can make the birthday cake.
