All our equipment is selected for the age and development stage of the children who will access it. We encourage children to think about their own safety and that of others, for example, by tidying up after themselves or taking care and suitable risk-taking when using climbing equipment.

Our Health Philosophy:

NUTRITION

The Redwood Center of Excellence works in partnership with

Leela's Lunches

to provide meals for the children above 12 months old.

This partnership was started to help educate children and families about healthy living and the importance of eating well. By sharing meals together, children also learn social skills and self-help skills as they serve and feed themselves.

Children are curious about food
and guiding them about nutrition can explain why we serve healthy meals and encourage them to choose healthy snacks and lifestyles.a

We believe that early childhood is
an important time for establishing lifelong healthy eating habits. Healthy foods help children to learn, concentrate and build sustained energy for physical activity.

We are committed to
implementing and embedding healthy eating and drinking and we provide a positive environment that reflects dietary requirements, cultural and family values.

We are a community hub support with services that will support with services that will children and families.

It is our duty as educators to build the capacity of parents and professionals in order to ensure the best care is given ensure the best care is given
