Our Nursery Cook has worked with us at The Beehive since 2011 when we opened, initially as a practitioner and room leader before becoming our Cook in September 2022. Katie has always had a passion for cooking (and working with children) and now works hard to develop new menus each season to ensure the children receive the highest quality of home-made, seasonal and nutritiously tailored meals.

Katie has driven the nursery to consistently achieve a 5* Food Hygiene rating, supported by our brilliant Kitchen Assistant Donna. Katie and Donna listen to the views of the children and adapt the menus to suit their preferences. Each term, the menus are carefully analysed to ensure sugar and salt content are kept to a minimum and all food types are rotated through our 5 week menu to provide a wide variety of foods, tastes and flavours for all the children.
