We strongly believe a healthy, balanced diet is central to good learning. All the children’s food is provided by the Preschool, including morning and afternoon tea. The food served will be in-season and vegetarian, with one hot dish. It is prepared freshly each day in the Ficino School kitchen. Children with food allergies of gluten intolerance will be catered for as required.
Mealtimes are about more than just food at Ficino Preschool with our preschoolers’ learning to serve and care for one another. The daily appointment of ‘lunch monitors’ is an eagerly anticipated opportunity for them to practise their leadership skills.
Lunch will also be an opportunity for the students to practise their table manners and learn to use cutlery appropriately.
