Head Chef, Georgina, affectionately known as “Gogo” by the children is like having our very own Yaya (Greek for Grandma)! Gogo is welcomed with opened arms and squeals of excitement at each centre by staff and children alike. She is a treasured member of our team who has been preparing freshly made meals for over 10 years. Gogo is of Greek background and brings with her, decades of knowledge and skill in fresh food preparation. Her meals are nutritious and mouth-watering, filling up and warming the bellies of our children – often with them asking for seconds, sometimes even thirds! Fresh, home style, nutrient dense cooked food is at the core Gogo’s philosophy – that a child will always feel safe and loved with a full tummy of good food.
Gogo has over the years has developed the well-deserving reputation for being one of the best cooks in the area. Such is the popularity of her food that Gogo has created a booklet of her ‘trial and tested’ meals after parents continuously requested copies of recipes to recreate at home! These booklets are available for a small fee from each centre, with funds raised being put straight back into educational resources for the centre. We pride ourselves on the delicious healthy meals we provide for children and just love seeing them all at meal times, conversing at the table, enjoying their food – just like one big family!
All of our food and menus are maintained in accordance with nutritional guidelines and family input. We provide and cater for dietary requirements and the needs of your child. In addition, we kindly ask families to provide a small tub of yogurt and a piece of fruit, which is shared as a fruit platter with the children for morning or afternoon tea.
