HomeworkSmoosh is a recreational service, however we do understand that homework is a concern for many families due to their work hours. Staff will endeavour to encourage your child to do their homework and will offer assistance if needed.
SMOOSH encourages healthy eating and aims to provide children with a healthy, nutritious breakfast and afternoon snack.
Children are encouraged to develop good eating habits through example and education. Parents are encouraged to share family and multicultural values and ideas to enrich the variety and enjoyment of food by the children. Fresh drinking water is always available; children are allocated their own cups labelled with their name.
Snack times are seen as social events where children and staff can relax and talk about their day. Children are encouraged to relax by taking time to sit and enjoy their food and the company of others.
Menu's are planned over a four-week period with the 5th week being the children's choice.
