Health & wellbeing

The staff at KCP are all aware of the importance of child health and wellbeing, meals are prepared on site by our nursery chief and are nutritious, well balanced and cater for dietary needs. The children have lots of opportunities for outdoor play, in our lovely rural setting being able to see first-hand the awe and wonder of the natural world around them. We support the children’s mental health and well-being by introducing them to simple mindfulness activities such as lying down on a blanket and watching the clouds.
