By the time your child is ready to move onto school they should have the ability to make healthy choices in life and a firm foundation in overal health.
At kloisters we believe that the best way to enable children to stay healthy is to work in partnership with families to ensure that all children are able to make healthy choices in life. We display all menu's for lunch and snack in the porch so that parents can check each day what their child has been eating and use this to plan their own dinner or just have a conversation whith their child about the things they have eaten that day.
Our snack menu is planned to ensure that children recieve a healthy and balanced diet which has good levels of carbohydrates to keep them active and learning throughout the day.
At Kloisters we believe that oral health is just as important as a healthy diet.
Medway statistics for children's tooth decay become more shocking every year and we are commited to playing our part in making sure that all children in our care learn to brush their teeth to keep them clean.
All children are given thier own special nursery toothbrush when they start at Kloisters Kindergarten, using this brush they are encouraged and assisted to brush their teeth after lunch time using a very small amount of toothpaste.
Each child's brush has a special animal cap to ensure that hygeine standards are kept high and toothpaste is never taken directly from the tube to the brush.
The children listen to a special brush time song to engage them in this activity.

We are commited to ensuring that all children receive the best care possible whilst in our setting. This includes healthy eating and oral hygiene to enable children to continue to make healthy choices into adulthood.
