Does your child talk about what they have had for snack time at home, or have they asked you for something they have tried at Pre-School? I know this is true for me, although i have good little eaters I’ve never managed to get mine to eat tuna. A few weeks ago I was doing my pot washing slot at Pre-School and guessed that pasta, tuna and sweetcorn must have been on the menu that morning. Sure enough I was asked if I could make tuna and pasta for a mealtime by my little people.
It was over a year ago that the Pre-School snack menu had a revamp, which meant that we needed to introduce a charge for snacks to ensure that the Pre-School was offering a variety of healthy snacks. As a parent I felt that £3 per child per half term charge was good value, knowing they were being offered fresh healthy snacks.
You may have noticed in the recent newsletter that, due to regulations, the Pre-School is no longer allowed to charge parents for snacks. This means that without an income to cover the cost of snacks that the quality and variety of the snacks we offer is at risk. We hope to be able to continue offering the variety of healthy snacks the children have become accustomed to by asking for donations from parents to cover the cost of snacks.
Many parents have have already made donations but we still have a shortfall, meaning that snack time may have to be reviewed in the future. If you would like to make a donation towards snacks the supervisor has a tin on the desk for donation. we are very grateful for any donations made.
