Meet our Chef
Diane is our fantastic nursery cook. She is a mum of 5 and has developed her skills of preparing healthy and balanced meals for children over the last 25 years. She prepares fresh meals for the children in our nursery every day, taking in to consideration everyone’s dietary requirements as well as children’s individual preferences. The children thoroughly enjoy the meals which are prepared for them and the parents often ask Diane for recipes and tips! She has a huge impact on the lives of the children in our nursery and their families.
Diane goes above and beyond for the children at Strawberry Hill by engaging them in a variety of activities including vegetable planting and maintaining our eco garden and greenhouse, baking and cooking lessons, preparing yummy treats for special occasions e.g. birthdays and always ensuring that everyone is included no matter what their dietary requirements may be.
Diane has embraced our Eco Schools Program and encourages the children to think about growing their own food. Diane has set up a greenhouse and vegetable patch in our eco garden and regularly takes groups of children to help her look after the crops.
