OUR MEALS

You are what you eat!

Lisa’s nursery menus are carefully put together, taking in to account the children’s ages and stages, their likes, dislikes and seasonal fruit and vegetables. She has expert knowledge of allergens and follows and dietary needs of the children meticulously, sourcing and creating quality alternatives so that all the children feel included at mealtimes.

Lisa also has a great understanding of weaning, including baby-led and works closely with parents of children in the baby and toddler room to discuss needs and preferences.

Lisa and the Dream Big Little On nursery menus have also won the prestigious Golden Apple Award.

At Dream Big Little One we place a huge amount of importance on mealtimes. All meals are served in a “family style”.

Sharing a meal with family or friends is the perfect time to relax, chat, bond and reflect on the day. It’s recognised that good eating habits established at an early age can continue into adulthood. So, it’s good to start family mealtimes with our children from a young age – around four to six months old, when they can sit comfortably and watch from a highchair. 

Shared mealtimes bring other benefits

  • We’re better able to monitor how much your child is eating and drinking.
  • Children are likely to eat more fruit and vegetables and less unhealthy food.
  • Shared mealtimes help to develop children’s social skills as they interact with others and learn how to engage in a conversation.
  • Chatting over dinner can help to boost a child’s vocabulary.
  • The comfort and familiarity of sharing a meal is good for our mental health.
  • It also enables us to model table manners, such as how to use cutlery.
  • And it can help digestion. Talking and listening can slow down our eating, and sitting upright, as opposed to eating while slumped on the sofa, is better for us.
As cheesy as it sounds but Dream Big Little One isn’t just a nursery, it genuinely feels like a little family! I will forever be grateful for everything the nursery has done for me & Amelia and the thought of Amelia leaving next year breaks my heart!!

Amelia's Mummy

The nursery itself is immaculate and spotlessly clean, and has a bright, welcoming feel as soon as you walk in. My daughter loves all the staff, especially her key worker! I couldn’t recommend DBLO highly enough.

Beatrice’s Mummy

We have been absolutely blown away by how amazing Dream Big Little One Nursery is! The staff are all amazing, so friendly and lovely with the children

Eadie and Felix's Mummy

The activities they do, the food they offer and the loving, caring environment is second to none and I never have any worries about leaving her even if she’s ever upset! It feels almost like a second home for her because she is so comfortable and happy there. I couldn’t recommend it enough!

Emilia's Mummy

Dream Big Little One are the best! They are always welcoming and make Emmie so happy. She’s always really excited for the extra things going on, like Jo Jingles coming in. She’s a big character and they keep up with her demands and help her grow everyday, while keeping me up to date daily with everything she’s been up to. We would be truly lost without them.

Emmie's Mummy

I pick my granddaughter up on a Thursday, she is happy and coming on so well, the staff are engaging and it’s obvious to all they enjoy their jobs. I admire their ethos; they have given her the best start for her next journey to primary school.

Evie's Grown-Ups

Is an amazing Nursery. My little boy has settled in so much and loves it so much all the staff are brilliant. And so good with him.
Want to thank them all for being amazing highly recommended.

George's Grown-Ups

Fantastic nursery, staff are amazing. Would definitely recommend!

Halle-Rae's Mummy

I chose here as my son came here from 9 months old until he started school and he absolutely loved it. All the staff were amazing and with all that has happened during the pandemic I wanted to feel comfortable knowing my little one would be okay as some staff were still there 5 years after my son left .

Harper's Mummy

My daughter loves going to nursery and seeing her happy face at the end of the day is pure joy – sometimes I think she doesn’t want to come home! Sonja has completely transformed the nursery and I am confident that the practices she has put in place will ensure that Harriet has the very best start to her education.

Harriet's Mummy

Our little boy has been going for a few months now and loves it here. The staff are brilliant, and they are always being creative with the children. It’s a very friendly nursery and all the staff knows every child. Would definitely recommend!

Leonardo's Grown-Ups

Our little girl absolutely loves DBLO, she quite literally runs in through the door! She has formed amazing bonds with the carers and learns so much from them. It’s always hard to trust someone else with your baby but we know she is in the safest hands. We couldn’t ask for anything more.

Lydia's Mummy

I couldn’t recommend this nursery enough! It is amazing and has exceeding every expectation I had from a nursery. The staff are amazing, so friendly and caring! I asked my little one who his friends were shortly after he started and he told me all of the names of the staff, he loves them all so much.

Max's Mummy

Our little boy returned to nursery today after an extended period off due to the current climate. The service and safety measures are exemplary as always and we felt confident leaving him today. Can’t recommend DBLO Nursery highly enough and we are so glad to be back. Thank you all for the fantastic job you do.

Michael's Daddy

My little girl returned to Dream Big this week after a few months off and she literally ran in! As soon as she saw the building, she was excited to get inside.  I can’t recommend the place enough! Thanks for all your hard work!

Orlaith's Mummy

You really are a fantastic team. I can’t thank you all enough in helping my two boys grow and gain confidence as they enter the big wide world. I will be eternally grateful to each and every one of you.

Ryan and Luke's Mummy

My son started at Dream big in November. He is already so settled and loves going to nursery, all the staff have made a massive effort to get to know him, me and his mummy! It makes me feel so much more at ease leaving him while we both work full time.. THANK YOU! You’re the best!

Teddy's Daddy

What an amazing bunch of staff. From management to domestics. Each and every one of them are dedicated to their job, always going above and beyond for every child and parent. Such a home from home feel with plenty of fun and engaging activities for all the children. I have viewed many nearby nurseries and this one is by far the best.

Tracy

My 14-year-old attended this nursery and still a lot of the same staff as my 13-month-old boys now attend. the nursery is very clean and well equipped, the staff are all friendly I wouldn’t send the boys anywhere else.
