‘To eat is a necessity but to eat intelligently is an art’
– La Rochefoucald.
NUTRITION AND THE MONTESSORI ETHOS
At Holly Grange we believe a healthy and well balanced diet is essential to a child’s education.
We provide a healthy breakfast, lunch and tea. All of our meals are freshly prepared on the premises and designed to be full of nutrition and flavour. We never give children raw egg, nut products, sweetened or soft drinks or processed food. Fresh drinking water is always available. Salt is never added to any of the food.
We use seasonal produce in our menu, and we change our menu twice per year: Winter and Summer menus.
We follow the natural seasons in the UK and base our menus on what is in season during that period, rather than the other way around.
See more information on what’s in season in different periods:
“Children enjoy yoga and mindfulness sessions which help to develop an awareness of their own well-being.” – Ofsted 2019.
Yoga has been proved as important for children as it is for adults. At Holly Grange we believe that it’s important for children to express their emotions and yoga helps young children to use their voices and bodies in order to find happiness and calm.
Some topics that we teach the children are: positive energy through water flow in the body, inner strength and concentration, expression and wellbeing.
