Lunch time

Lunch at 11.45am approximately. The menu is well- balanced, has been elaborated by a specialist in nutrition.

Our meals are totally homemade cooking with natural ingrediants. Shopping of ingrediants is done in totally reliable stores (we have been cooking for children for over 30 years now!! ).

Teachers are in charge of teaching good eating habits at mealtimes. (Parents will be informed so they can follow in the same steps if they see it fit ... thus the child will not be confused by receiving different types of instructions. It is very important that we act as a "team" in this sense, don't you think !)

When you register we will ask you about food allergies, if any.

If the child needs a special diet, please let us know in the morning so we can tell our cook to prepare it.

Children will have an afternoon snack at 4pm.

Celiac children or those with special diets requiring specific ingredients (bread or pasta without gluten etc...) will have to provide them from home and we will cook them according to your specific instructions in this sense.

Nap time

After lunch the children will have a nap, a chance to rest and recover from morning activities.

If a child feels ill or gets hurt

  • If  child has a fever or does not feel well we will call you to pick him up 
  • If he has a little scratch we will do first aid (also with previous authorization signed by you)
  • If he gets more seriously hurt we will call you to pick him up to see a doctor.

 Reports

Two reports will be made every year, as well as follow-up meetings with teachers (according to every child's needs).

Teachers will share daily progress and activity with you on a daily basis.

Photos and Videos

During  the year we will take pictures and videos of the activities, special fun moments and also celebrations in class.

Festivals for parents
