In our experience nurturing a child’s development begins with a strong focus on their physical wellbeing, and at the heart of this for us is a commitment to healthy eating.
Your child’s delicious and healthy meals are prepared by qualified and experienced Chefs. Our kitchens are well resourced to ensure daily meals are delivered using nutritious locally-sourced ingredients with a focus on both quality and taste.
Children learn more about food when they are involved in the growth and preparation of ingredients. Your child will have hands-on involvement in seasonal planting, caring for and harvesting plants used as ingredients in our daily menus.
Mealtimes are fundamental to the development of your child’s social and life skills. Children are encouraged to engage in conversation with their peers and use ‘real’ crockery and cutlery, as part of their growth and learning.
Philip Abulencia is our Paisley Park Head Chef and Mentor. Philip is passionate about showcasing the wonderful local produce we have available and our ‘paddock to plate’ approach to food and sustainability. Philip works with and mentors our centre Chefs to develop our delicious seasonal menus and to educate children about healthy eating through fun and sensory activities.
Jason Standring is our Paisley Park Consultant Chef. Jason works with our centre teams to ensure the highest standards across our centres in food safety, chemical safety and food allergy and intolerances procedures and compliance. Jason manages inductions for all new chefs and kitchen staff and advises on design and fit-out for our kitchens.
With many years of experience and a strong focus on quality, Philip and Jason are integral in supporting our Chefs to serve delicious and nutritious meals our children love.
