As a large number of children have food allergies or intolerances, we leave it up to you to provide the best foods for your child's specific needs in a packed lunch.
As nut allergies are quite common in children, we like most childcare centres are nut-free. Consequently we request parents exclude all nuts and nut based foods from their child's lunch box.
Please let us know if your child is allergic or intolerant of any food, so that we can accommodate this in baking, cooking and morning and afternoon teas.

You will need to send your children along with the following:
- Lunch box and a water bottle
- Formula and bottles (for those still being bottle fed)
- Nappies, wipes and creams

We require a minimum of three hours, twice a week (a total of six hours). This is to ensure your child settles in well and develops a sense of belonging. We want to make sure your child is comfortable at St Peters Childcare.
