‘Snack Cafe’ is open for about half an hour with a choice of three or four items including a carbohydrate, fruit and/or vegetables. Each child chooses when to come for snack, he/she then chooses what to have and is encouraged to be independent in pouring his/her own drink, buttering toast, cutting up fruit, etc. Snack cafe is supervised by a member of staff and is a very sociable time for the children. Examples of snack provided: Toast, crumpet, fresh and dried fruits, tomatoes, cheese, carrots.
Snacks are included in our fees.
We offer hot school lunches, provided by Kite’s Kitchen, who provide lunches to Sonning Common Primary School and allergies can be catered for. Hot lunches are at an additional cost of £2.50, and need to be ordered in advance, although we can also accommodate any last minute requests for hot meals, before 9.30 am on the day required . The lunches are served at Pre-School for children who stay all day, or who come to our afternoon sessions. Menus are available at the start of every term. This term menu can be viewed here.
Kite’s Kitchen’s motto is “fresh healthy tasty!” They provide lunch to hundreds of children based in Sonning Common Primary School (and to us at the Pre-School) https://twitter.com/KitesKitchen
