Healthy Eating



The focus of the menu is around fresh, nutritionally balanced, healthy homemade meals cooked on site. Jo Thornber, our chef aims to prepare ‘restaurant quality food for children’. She has been with the nursery for seven years and was recognised as a Top 5 Nursery Chef in 2011.

We cater for a wide variety of requirements including allergies, religion, or lifestyle choices (e.g. halal, dairy-free, wheat-free). The menu rotates every season with many multicultural dishes.

Children are encouraged to enjoy meal times as a social experience, and develop independence in eating well. Example meals include: Moroccan Lamb with Couscous, Hungarian Chicken and Rice, Asian-style tofu with cucumber, followed by a pudding and fresh fruit. salmon fishcakes, seasonal soups.

True partnership with Parents

Working closely with parents is an important part of our ethos at Leeds Montessori School.

Everyday, we give clear feedback on how your child has been that day and you can tell us anything important from home.

You can access regular news on what is happening at the nursery through our secure on-line learning journal for parents, with key observations of your child. Parents sometimes find this convenient as it can be accessed at your convenience. We also have regular updates on Facebook.

Periodically there will be a 'parents evening', we discuss with how your child is progressing in the Early Years Foundation Stage, and discuss observations at home.

There are specific parent briefings on topics such as more detail on Montessori and how it works.

Summer Sports Day and Christmas Show: these events to help bring parents together as a community.

We seek regular parent feedback on what we do well, and what we need to improve in the nursery. We have a parents forum to help with this as well.
