A day in Sandytots Nursery


At Sandytots Nursery, we believe that every child deserves a healthy start in life. We are committed to providing a healthy and balanced diet for all babies and children in order to promote their growth, development, health and well-being.

A hot meal is provided each full day, short day and school day or AM session that your child attends. Breakfast and afternoon snacks are also provided. Tea is provided if your child attends Sandytots between 4:00pm – 4:30pm.

Fully qualified kitchen staff prepare and cook the meals on site in our kitchen.¬†Our menus are planned on a four-weekly rota, so children can enjoy a variety of dishes.¬†These can be adjusted to cater for specific allergy or dietary requirements. An ‘Additional Needs Care Plan’ will be completed with the parent/carer to discuss any allergies or dietary requirements.

Milk and water are available in the nursery rooms throughout the day. Fruit is available at snack time at 10:00am and 2:00pm throughout the nursery.

The five weekly menus are listed below, please speak to a member of staff if you have any dietary concerns.

Parents/Carers will need to ensure that children are provided with suitable named clothing for all weathers since we try and encourage outdoor play as much as possible. e.g. spare clothes, sun hat, rain mac, wellies, winter coat, gloves, etc.

Please provide a reusable bag, (this can be a bag for life or a swim bag etc), to put dirty clothes in to take home as we don’t supply nappy sacks in order to be more of a eco friendly nursery.


Children who are suffering from an infectious disease or who are not feeling well enough to attend nursery should be kept at home.

Parents are requested to inform the nursery if any symptoms of ill health are shown by children.

If your child requires medication while at nursery, parents must give written permission. If your child becomes ill while in the care of the nursery you will be contacted and asked to take your child home.

Qualified nursery staff will, when necessary, give basic first aid treatment to children following accidents. If further medical treatment is required, the parent/carer will be contacted immediately and the nursery manager will take the appropriate action. Parents/carers will be informed of all accidents and will be asked to read and sign an ‘accident form’.
