At Stretton Early Years and Kindergarten, we know that healthy bodies are just as important as healthy minds.

Well-nourished children are better able to concentrate, interact, play and generally feel their best, so we’re committed to providing healthy, nutritious meals for every child.

All our freshly cooked meals are prepared daily by our in-house cook and we cater for individual dietary, allergy and religious needs.

Miss Wendy (our in-house cook) has achieved 100% in our annual food safety audit! We have been accredited with our 5 star rating again 2020 from the Brisbane City Council.

Breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are all included, at no extra cost.

Mini MasterChefs

To complement our Community Garden, the children also participate in our Mini Masterchefs program. This is where the children help our Centre Cook to prepare the food for their own lunch and afternoon tea. This really enriches the learning experience through an understanding of growing the food, harvesting the food and then preparing the food that they eat.

The children also receive a Certificate of Participation, that they can take home and proudly discuss with their families.
