A healthy diet is a happy child
Food has a huge impact on children’s everyday lives; their behaviour, mood, growth of bones and teeth and their ability to concentrate in class. Good nutrition is essential for children and we take nutrition very seriously. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon your child will be offered a fruit snack and we encourage children to drink water throughout the day. This is a perfect time for children to enjoy their snack, socialise in a relaxed atmosphere and encourage language development. It has been proven that by NOT giving children food that is high in sugar or processed foods, they are more eager to learn, concentrate better in class and their sleep patterns improve.
Lunch – the school can provide lunch at an extra cost but if you would prefer you can provide a packed lunch for them.
To reduce the risk of cross infection we request that children are not brought to The BECC if they are showing any signs of infection. This may include diarrhoea and vomiting, high fever or any infectious diseases that may be suspected. We provide information for parents of infection incubation periods and exclusion times for common illnesses such as vomiting and diarrhoea or chickenpox. By working closely with parents when a child is sick not only prevents the spread of diseases to all the children within the centre but ensures the quick recovery of the child. The staff at The BECC can give medication to children if it has been authorised by a doctor and agreed by the Manager that it can be administered on the premises.
You will have complete peace of mind knowing that your child is in a Centre that adheres to all UK standards and that we take security very seriously ensuring your child is completely safe in our care. Each parent will be issued an ID card which will be asked to be shown when collecting your child. Our staff are vigilant and your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us. If you require another family member or friend to collect your child you will have to inform us first.
There are currently two school uniforms. They are a polo shirt with dark blue shorts with The BECC logo on which can be worn any day. The second uniform available is the sports uniform. This consists of a blue t-shirt and dark blue shorts and again can be worn on any day of the week. There is no uniform for the Nursery class.
