Fruits and Vegetables

Nutritious food is important for children to grow and learn. At Tiddlywinks we educate the children about healthy eating and encourage them to try new food regularly. Fresh fruit is on our daily menu. The snack menu is sent to the parents for the coming week.   

We have links with our local supermarket who provide us with fresh food weekly.


Children are offered a healthy snack during the morning and afternoon sessions. These will normally consist of a carbohydrate as well as fruits and vegetables.


Hydration is as important as healthy food. Water is provided at snack time as is Milk on the morning of the delivery. 


Children who stay all day or until 1pm provide their own packed lunch. We work with parents to support healthy eating at every meal.

Health Eating

Children should come to Tiddlywinks in comfortable clothing appropriate to the weather conditions.

Each child keeps a pair of wellies and waterproofs at Tiddlywinks for outdoor play. 

Uniform is not mandatory but many of our children choose to wear it.

Uniform can be purchased directly from Tiddlywinks

Clothing & Uniform

Tiddlywinks uses Seesaw to regularly update parents on their child’s progress and to share group activities within the pre school. 

We also encourage parents to share ‘wow’ moments from home with us so that we can work together on your child’s development and next steps
