Health & Outdoor

We believe that every child should have a balanced life style that incorporates the outdoor learning opportunities into the nursery’s curriculum.

On a daily basis your child can expect to play in our specially designed garden to enhance their learning and creativity. Each day we set up the garden with a variety of activities that will help children to experiment, stimulate, investigate and build relationships with friends. Not only does the garden provide an area where children can run around and exercise, but also helps prevent illnesses such as coughs and colds. This is because these types of viruses are airborne and by being in an open environment it can help eliminate them.

We also have a strong belief in being in the community, so children will have the opportunities to go to the library and borrow books, take part in physical classes such as tennis and Zumba.

At Aspire we offer an extensive menu for our children, and for children weaning, we form a plan based on their individual needs, looking at what they have tried at home. The children will receive a balanced diet, and a wide variety of meals that are inspired by different cultures around the world. The menu is on a three week rotation. Our menu has no added salt, and where you often find foods with high salt contents such as stock cubes, we actually make our own stock so there is no salt contents. We also use whole foods such as whole wheat pasta and brown rice.
