Catering & housekeeping staff…
Name: Suzanne H
Position: Nursery Cook
Start: October 2007
Hello, my name is Suzanne H and I am the Nursery Cook and qualified in Food Safety & Catering, I am also level 3 qualified in childcare. I am a firm believer in creating healthy, nutritious meals using fresh produce, to promote your child’s development, concentration and health.
The children contribute to their meals by growing herbs in their sensory garden for me to use, or by going on outings to the local market for fresh produce. Having an understanding about keeping healthy, the community, growth and choices allows children to become active learners. The children (especially in the 2-5 year rooms) demonstrate independence by serving their own meals, pouring their own drinks, and clearing away their plates/bowls after they have finished. Children have the opportunity to make healthy choices and the social aspects of our mealtimes are essential in promoting good table manners and engaging in conversation.
I cater for any allergies, dislikes, cultural and religious requirements and vegetarian options are always available. Little Leprechauns has been awarded the highest score of 5 for food hygiene and safety during the environmental health inspections.

Hello, my name is Sharon and I am the housekeeper for Little Leprechauns Day Nursery.
I am proud of the role I play within the Nursery as keeping the setting clean and hygienic ensures that the children can play in a safe environment.
I believe that all children have the right to play and learn in a safe, bright and welcoming environment, and I feel privileged to be part of a team creating this for the children.
I have ample experience both in housekeeping duties and working alongside children, and I get such pleasure from enhancing their play environment.
