Organic Life

Organic Life

We strongly believe that the old saying, 'you are what you eat' is a very good diet guideline. If we eat a range of healthy, vibrant foods, we will feel healthy, vibrant and alive! We love food! But only fresh homemade food, which we've been committed to serving from the day we opened our doors.

We have fantastic organic facilities to provide safe, stimulating, inspiring environment for the children.

We care about the environment and the impact we have on it for our children. We teach them to love and protect the environment and we do everything we can to give them a healthy start in life. The meals and snacks we provide are always fresh and organic. Cleaning products are natural and eco-friendly, nappies are biodegradable, and toiletries are organic or made from natural, safe ingredients. Most of our toys and furniture in the nursery are made from wood instead of plastic, creating a relaxing and nurturing environment in which children can learn and develop.

Why Organic?

Good food creates good health and a good mind. It really does enable children to learn, play, and enjoy life. The food we provide in our nursery is organic, which means:

  • It’s Healthier
    Organic foods have higher levels of vitamin C, minerals, cancer-fighting antioxidants, and other beneficial nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and chromium, because the soil they are grown in is chemical free.
  • No GM
    Genetically modified (GM) crops and ingredients are not allowed under organic standards.
  • Care for Animals
    Organic farming requires animals to be kept in more natural, free ranging conditions with a more natural diet.
  • High Standards
    Organic food comes from trusted sources and the standards are laid down in European Law. We guarantee that all of our ingredients are organic and have committed to comply with the Soil Association Code of Practice for organic catering.

 

Materials are always re-used and/or recycled wherever feasible. Cleaning products are natural and eco-friendly; nappies are biodegradable (made without bleach or chlorines); the creams and pastes we provide are organic or made from natural, safe constituents. We have researched and implemented our own, child-friendly policies such as ‘Low-Plastics’ (for children’s equipment and toys) ‘No Microwaves’ (for any children’s foods) and ‘No Wi-fi’ (anywhere in the building). All of our policies and procedures are born out of our strong commitment to offer a difference in our childcare, and are constantly reviewed, researched and improved.
