We know how important meal times are for children and what a great opportunity it can be for communicating and socialising.
With this in mind we have created a Bistro in our communal area for the 1 - 3 year olds. Every meal time the children make their way to the Bistro where they can choose a table to share with their friends. On the table they have a menu with what meals they will have that day along with pictures.
Throughout meal times the children talk about healthy eating and what they enjoy eating. The children help to pour their drinks and help to clear their plates before going back to their base rooms to sleep or play.
