Mary our cook works in our kitchen Monday to Friday 8am-4.30pm.

Mary has completed her level 3 Food Hygiene training along with Allergy Awareness Training.

We are committed to healthy eating and ensuring that children have well balanced and nutritious meals here at the Nursery in Sidcup. All of our meals are prepared and cooked by Mary. We have a vegetarian option available on our menu daily.

We have worked with Bexley to achieve our Healthy Catering Award ensuring that our menu’s are well balanced, low in sugar and provide healthy choices for all children.

Twice a week our children also have starter before their main meal rather than a pudding afterwards to limit sweet desserts.

Children are offered fresh water throughout the day and cows milk/ oat milk is also offered at our snack times.

We provide a tailored menu for our younger babies under 6 months of age and work alongside parents during weaning.

We are aware of children’s individual dietary needs and ensure that we follow strict procedures to enforce food safety. The Nursery is also a nut free zone.

We have also been awarded a 5 rating in our most recent food hygiene inspection and fully implement Safer Food Better Business in our kitchen.

If your child has any dietary requirements or allergies please discuss with us when visiting the Nursery as this is something we are more then happy to go through with you in more detail.

All of the children also take part in weekly cooking sessions with Mary. The children get the chance to put on their aprons and chef hats and get creative with their cooking and baking.

What our families say

{

So far 2 of my children have attended Premier Lodge and my 3rd is set to go soon. All started from 1 year old and my two sons love it. The staff are friendly and caring - they provide an atmosphere that children feel safe and happy in. The setting is creative with activities - my children have cooked, danced, been on trips, sung, been in plays, coloured, drawn, read, role played, painted, tried new foods, made so many crafts and the list goes on. All staff are very approachable and take the time to get to know the children. We get regular updates in the forms of pictures, descriptions and formal observations all easily accessed by the app, which is used effectively by the nursery. I would have no trouble recommending this nursery to others. My kids love it!

My eldest has attended Premier Lodge since January 2020 and my youngest for 2 months. The staff is always friendly and helpful, they let us know what happens in the nursery through the Famly app. Kids are always happy when I pick them up. My eldest loves his meals and he always describes them as “ yummy food”. Also, I am thankful to the staff that has made a big difference in my child’s speech, making him more confident, and developing their brain with the activities done in the nursery. A big thanks to all the staff that are doing their best to make sure our kids are happy and safe.

My little one has been at Premier Lodge for 3 months now, and it’s only been positive! He’s in full-time, which was a huge worry considering he’d obviously not had any time apart from us due to lockdowns, but the team were brilliant for settling him in; they were really positive and great at communication.
The app the nursery uses is just great for keeping you informed, and all the staff including management are just so helpful and approachable. What drew us to it was the feeling of it being a smaller, family feeling nursery, and it’s really continued to be that.

My little boy has now been with the nursery for 2.5 years. He has come on so much in confidence. Staff are really helpful and very friendly. Office is always available and will do anything they can to help. During lockdown, my little boy found it difficult settling back in and being around groups of people again. However, the nursery helped him settle back in and he now loves nursery more than ever. During lockdown 3, we stayed home as this was easier for us, however, he has now returned as he kept asking to see friends and aunties. They always do a wide variety of tasks and activities all of which my little boy says he enjoys. I love getting the daily updates through the app and find them really helpful. Overall I couldn't imagine him being at another nursery or loving it as much as he does at Premier Lodge.

My daughter has been here since she was 10 months old and has moved up 4 rooms. In each and every one of the rooms, the staff have been so kind, caring and warm and my daughter has flourished here. The pictures we get sent and their learning journals are something I look forward to each day.

A fun-filled caring nursery to whom have & are catering for my two children beautifully (aged 4 & 1).
It's always tricky deciding where to place your child(ren) & this was especially so for me as my eldest child has additional needs & an EHCP. It has never phased the staff and they couldn't do more in terms of progressing my daughter like they have.

Lots of fun activities, great themed days, well equipped toy store, sensory room, arts & crafts galore, nursery mobile app & lovely home cooking to name a few out of the many benefits.
