One important factor, high on parents list is the menu and quality of food offered to the children.

At Circus, as a daily array of beautiful aromas diffuse throughout the setting, we can safely say this is a high priority and focus.

Our wonderful head chef Amy brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the setting.  She and her assistant work diligently to ensure all children’s needs are met on a daily basis, being mindful of any special allergies and dietary requirements.

We are proud to offer, not 5, but up to 7 portions of fresh fruit and vegetables each day. We prepare food from start to finish to ensure children receive a balanced and healthy diet and include samples of new dishes for the children to try, developing new exciting culinary tastes.

We also enjoy seeing lots of “over and above” delicious homemade cakes and puddings being whipped up, always with a passionate smile!  Both chefs visit the rooms each day to deliver the deliciously prepared food to the children, carefully monitoring any firm favourites and taking on board any constructive feedback from children and staff.

Following many years of receiving a five-star award, we can say with full confidence that the kitchen runs to a very high standard. We are proud to show families this wonderful hub of child cuisine, where we hope you will have the opportunity to meet the dedicated duo on your personal tour and see the delicious menus we have.

Celebrations at Circus!

Birthdays are a special time in a child’s life, when that day arrives it is an opportunity to make a child feel special, unique and valued. At Circus our aim is to make every child feel this way. If your child attends our setting they will receive a specially baked complimentary birthday cake of their own to share with their friends.

Our nursery cook and her assistant are both baking enthusiasts and will have a cake prepared and ready for your child’s birthday. No need for you to worry about different allergies or how many children are in the group, our cooks will have all this information and will bake a cake that is not only suitable for all the children, but is truly scrumptious!!
