Do we need to bring food for our child? 
We are a NO NUT Service. This is because we have children and staff who have Anaphylactic reactions to these foods.  Our Food Policy excludes any food being brought into the Service.
All  the meals we serve are created  by our own staff in the kitchen at the school or at Sutherland Street Childcare & Kindergarten.
During School Term we offer Breakfast, Afternoon Tea and Late Snack.
During School Holidays we offer Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Late Snack.
Menus for the current term and School Holidays are available for review on our Food and Fees webpage.

Children with food intolerances and allergies are catered for where possible.

 My child has special dietary requirements, do we need to bring food?
Not unless the food required is difficult to source.
When you enrol your child, we ask for details of any allergies.
All of our recipes have lactose, egg and gluten free alternatives- other allergies will need to be discussed with us so we can ensure that we are providing nutritious, balanced meals for all children in our care.
Do I pay less  if I leave my child for a few hours?
Our rates for Out of School Care and Vacation Care do not accommodate short term stays.
Do I get charged for Public Holidays?
Yes. If  your child has a permanent booking on a day on which a Public Holiday falls, the family will be
charged the normal fee.
However,  where possible , we do offer a swap day within the same week if there is space available
on the day chosen as a replacement day.
