Weaning

Parents of young babies are requested to provide the nursery with formula milk and baby foods if they wish until they are fully weaned. We can work together with parents and children to provide a weaning menu such as pureed vegetables and fruits.

Stop the Rot

Our nursery is a member of the Stop the Rot campaign which focuses on the importance of healthy teeth and gums. One of the ways we reinforce this is by encouraging the children to brush their teeth after lunch, a toothbrush and tooth paste is provided by the nursery.
