Food & Meal Time

Only the best will do…

That’s why we serve foods made from nutrient dense natural ingredients, Organic is simply the best. We also have a water purification system to make sure we quench our thirst with healthy energised water.

Lara is a qualified Chef and currently the Sydney Chapter Leader for the Weston A Price Foundation. Her enthusiasm and great understanding of nutrition means really healthy nutrient dense foods for all the children at Penrith’s only organic childcare centre.

We Serve:

  • Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Late Snacks.

Our menus include:

  • Organic fresh vegetables, and fruits
  • Grass fed and finished meats and organic poultry
  • Organic Milks, yoghurts, cheeses and/or alternatives
  • Organic cereals such as rice and pasta
  • We cater to Gluten free, Vegetarian, Paleo, GAPS and Dairy free diets
  • Water as a preferred drink. Learn more about our purifying water filtration system here

We also:

  • Only cook with mineral salts from France called “Salt of the Earth Celic Sea Salt and organic herbal salt called Herbamare from Switzerland
  • Limit added sugars and educate our families on the dangers of refined sugars
    We prepare our own home made healing broths, we make our own sauce and even grind our own butter chicken spices. We make our own fresh yoghourt too.
  • We respect all religious, cultural and family values and customs, including those related to food and eating. When a child has particular needs related to eating, for whatever reason, we discuss with the family the best way to offer food for the child. This may involve the family providing food from home, or agreeing on specific foods that can be included or avoided.

Yoga

Our program incorporates Dance and Drama as well as Yoga, and a variety of outdoor games to ensure children are offered all the benefits of exercise as part of Health our Wellness program.

Yoga for kids is so much more than relaxation and exercise. It is a way to engage children in active play. Children are engaged in body movement, strength building poses, and coordination enhancing exercises. Yoga also allows children to use their imaginations as they work out. For example cats can be any colour, volcanos can erupt confetti, and airplanes can fly to the neighborhood park. When presented in age-appropriate ways, children have fun with yoga, and truly see it as a way to play.

Children are born into a world of technology. This world provides an overload of cognitive stimulation, and has created an environment where children are less and less inclined to engage in physical activity. Keeping the body active is fundamental to healthy living. Children need time to play.

We are inspired by the teachings of Amira Gaynor who is the founder of Namaste Kid, we use Amira’s unique yoga programs that immersed children in a fun and creative yoga experience.

We understand that play in natural environments offers considerable benefits for children. Their experience increased health benefits, stronger concentration skills, and enhanced social interaction skills. They also develop an emotional bonding with the natural world, which will serve as a solid foundation for a lifelong environmental ethic. Playing in natural environments helps young children become grounded in a positive sense of self, not to mention developing an understanding and appreciation of the natural world. Our cute vegetable and bunny garden offers a lovely natural experience.

Language programs

Recent studies on brain development show that early exposure to more than one language actually builds a more powerful brain. It also strengthens a child’s mastery and understanding of his or her first language. In addition, research has found some surprising benefits to early foreign language exposure in children. Studies show that babies that were exposed to sounds of different languages early in life retained the ability to identify those sounds years later. This may make it easier for your child to learn other languages later in life.

Studies have shown that when children are adequately exposed to two languages at an early age, they are more flexible and creative. They also demonstrate improved overall school performance and superior problem-solving skills.

Many experts now believe that babies exposed to more than one language during their first year of life will not only have an easier time learning foreign languages later in life, but actually improve their listening, problem-solving, and reasoning skills in general.

By exposing children to language at an early age, they will have an easier time when they are required to learn language later in school.

Hear from some of our Happy Parents

Dear Lara,

I just wanted to drop a note to express my appreciation of your team.
The work your staff put into the centre, their commitment to their positions and the care given to the children is exceptional.
Over the past 18 months that Shaun has been in your centre he has excelled in every area of development and has improved so much from eating a variety of foods with varied tastes and flavours to social interactions with other kids including teachers. Observing Shaun’s development, Dale and I couldn’t be happier.

On another point I can’t help but admire the work you and your staff have done in the outdoor play areas! They are absolutely amaizing and it’s obvious from the children’s reactions that it’s a great success!

Thanks! Janelle
