To ensure enough energy to play and learn the whole day, we provide 5 meals a day at Penguins. Breakfast is served for children who arrive before 8am, and consists of toast and/or cereal and milo. Morning and Afternoon teas are rolling meal-times guided by children’s natural hunger cues. Children are able to come to the table when they are ready and the meal is available for up to an hour. Morning and Afternoon teas consist of finger foods (e.g: sandwiches, vegetable platters, crackers and cheese) along with a choice of fresh fruit.
Lunch is time for children to come together in their rooms and enjoy eating alongside their friends and teachers. A hot-cooked meal is served, along with servings of mashed vegetables for our infants and toddlers (if required).
A late snack is provided for children picked up after 5.15pm (earlier for our infant rooms). This is usually a piece of fruit or a biscuit/cracker and is designed just to see children through the end of the day and not to fill up their tummies prior to their evening meal at home.
