Keeping Healthy and Happy

Home Cooked Food

Our in house wonderful professional chef Caroline prepares delicious home cooked produce, using all healthy and organic ingredients, some are even our own homegrown! Our tasty meals and snacks are without salt,  Deserts and cakes use absolute minimal sugar, most often a sweet vegetable to flavour such as with chocolate and beetroot cakes.  

In our very own light, plant filled, beautiful dining hall we also run  Cook School sessions everyday for every room, and quite often Caroline shares our great lessons together with the team.   

Promoting Well-Being

To meet all our children’s individual needs, our stimulating curriculum draws on a wide range of learning disciplines – from ones that include Sensory, Visual and Auditory components to Kinaesthetic, Musical and Naturalistic fields. We have daily Yoga and Cooking Club, Heuristic Play, Music and Movement sessions.  We also have daily Exercise, Ball games  and Outdoor Pursuits.  Orchidale children experience an exciting Extra Curriculum Provision in order to enhance their Well Being and Learning about themselves, about being healthy and about the world.   


Healthy Body, Healthy Planet

Our emphasis on physical exercise, on getting outside and on making great, healthy eating choices promotes the importance of having a healthy body to our children. This focus on wellness extends to the health of our planet:

our home cooking uses locally sourced fruit and vegetables; we use little or no plastic; we even send off our dirty nappies to be turned into biofuel. In this way, our children gain a sense of themselves and of others and their place in the world. They learn how important it is to care for and to be considerate of others, as well as the environment around them.

Focus weeks involve my child's input and include lots of activities based around their current interests. They go to Forest School weekly and learn lots about nature.
