At Susan Lawrence Nursery we have a great focus on Healthy Eating. All our lunches are provided by The Nursery Catering Company. The meals are prepared and cooked with fresh and healthy ingredients and then packaged and blast frozen to ensure it keeps all its healthy goodness. They offer a wide selection of healthy-balanced meals which are rotated and give children a great eating experience.
Our tea is prepared by our team at the nursery setting and again all meals are freshly prepared with a focus on providing healthy-balanced meals. We work very closely with the Early Start Nutrition team who support with our menu planning.
We can cater for most dietary requirements including allergies, halal, vegetarian etc. Please speak with the nursery manager for further information.
Below is a sample selection of food available from The Nursery Catering Company.

Martina Kempster – Nursery Manager
I have a level 3 childcare diploma in children and young people’s workforce. I have worked in the education sector since 2006 in many roles leading up to my current role as manager at Susan Lawrence Nursery. From my extensive past experiences I have gained great understanding and knowledge of child development.
Working with children and developing their learning has always been a passion of mine. I believe all childcare practitioners have a duty to provide the best quality of learning for the children in their care, and help every child to achieve their full potential. I always strive to ensure that we deliver a high quality service at all times.
