    Food For Thought!

    At GoldenSparks, we understand the importance of providing healthy wholesome meals made with a selection of fresh ingredients, which appeals to the children.

    Our daily menus are thoughtfully planned by our resident chef keeping in mind the need to introduce the children to a variety of foods and promote healthy eating habits.

    At GoldenSparks, the children are involved in family style meals in a group wherein they learn skills like how to set the tables, serve themselves, and have a conversation with others in the table. Babies are fed on demand when they are very young and join in the family style meals, as they get older.  Such mealtimes where children of all ages eat in a group are great fun, very relaxing and induces them to open up, teaching them how to be part of a group and enabling them to acquire valuable social skills right from the early years.

    We understand that certain children may have special dietary needs. We take every care to cater to their requirements after a detailed consultation with the manager.

    Mothers who are desirous of continuing to breastfeed their babies are encouraged to do so and are offered a quiet and comfortable place where they can feed them. GoldenSparks, also helps mothers in managing breastfeeding their babies while they are at the childcare by storing breast milk.

    We at GoldenSparks, Childcare, persistently endeavour to uphold our reputation for providing a very high standard of meals using the best quality ingredients. Your child will receive a two course lunch that is prepared by our cook using fresh ingredients on a daily basis.
