School Meals Information
Lunchtime is a very important part of our Nursery day, when all the children come together with the staff to share a meal. Lunchtimes are a great opportunity to develop the children's social skills, physical skills and independance.
School meals are prepared at nearby Gilnahirk Primary School and transported over to us at Kings Road, where they are served up by our dining attendant Mrs Kelly.
If your child has a food allergy, the team at Gilnahirk kitchens will be able to talk through the meals with you and discuss subsitutions. They can be reached by phoning 028 9040 1697.
The Education Authority charge £2.50 a day for school dinners (so £12.50 a week), which is payable in nursery weekly by cash or cheque made payable to 'Education Authority - South Eastern Region'. If you feel your child may be eligible for Free School Meals then it is important to apply as soon as possible, more details on free meal eligibility can be found here.
