Maintaining a healthy environment for your child
Kingfisher Day Nursery Didsbury believes that a clean environment is a healthy and safe environment; to this end we employ 2 cleaners and a caretaker. All rooms are cleaned daily and deep cleaned twice weekly. Our caretaker ensures that all general maintenance is carried out promptly and the whole nursery is redecorated annually.
At Kingfisher Day Nursery Didsbury we strongly believe that a healthy balanced diet is essential for growth and development in under 5’s. A good diet and healthy menu will help to give your child the best start in life. With the help of our fulltime chef we always provide fresh, balanced meals to the children. All meals are freshly prepared on the premises. Our menus are varied and every day contains the 5 a day. We encourage our children to explore different foods from around the world and challenge their palates with new tastes and textures. We are able to cater for a full range of dietary requirements whether the child’s needs are medical or parental preferences.
