Numdaji Kwei Children’s Centre recognises the role that good nutrition plays in promoting health and wellbeing in all children.
The Centre employs a full time cook who prepares 3 meals daily. Parents are not required to provide any meals for their child/children as all meals are cooked and prepared by the centre.
Our menu’s have been assessed and approved by the Healthy Eating Advisory Service and meets the Menu planning guidelines for long day care.
During meal times educators sit with the children and encourage positive discussions about food and health. Children are encouraged to feed themselves as appropriate and educators assist and support the children as required. At Numdaji Kwei we value the opportunities that mealtimes provide for children’s learning, socialising and experimenting.

The centre is a registered member of the SunSmart Early Childhood Program and we have a Sun Smart Policy that meets the SunSmart guidelines and recommendations to reduce skin cancer risk.
Educators and parents work cooperatively to ensure the children, educators and visitors at the Centre receive a healthy balance of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Educators check the SunSmart UV Alert Indicator before going outdoors. Our service provides large shaded areas through trees, shade sails and undercover areas. Sunscreen is applied when the UV is 3 or above. During this time, educators discuss sun smart practices with children, including encouraging self-application of sunscreen.
