Healthy Living

For us, healthy living means thinking about everything – physical and emotional care, spaces to play, explore and rest, outdoor areas for action, creativity and learning, people who care and protect, as well as nourishing food for healthy growing children. We offer all this and more.


See our menu

Our menus change all the time, keeping our food fresh and interesting for everyone. Children at St Margarets come from lots of different cultures so the food we serve reflects this. Here’s an example of a daily menu.
