TCC follows all components as required by our association with the Healthy Together Victoria’s Achievement program. TCC has been recognised as a Healthy Eating Early Childhood Service and has successfully met state-wide benchmarks for:

1. Physical Activity

2. Healthy Eating and Oral Health

3. Sun Protection

4. Tobacco Control

5. Safe environments

In 2017, we will be working towards the remainder benchmarks of the program to ensure our Practices and Policies reflect our ongoing commitment to Early Childhood Health and Education.

In 2016, our Menus were assessed by Nutrition Australia. Based on the menu planning guidelines for long day care services, we were congratulated and received a Certificate of compliance in providing the nutrition and developmental needs of children in long day care. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Healthy Eating Advisory Service and Nutrition Australia to ensure our menus continue to promote the health and wellbeing of young children.

Our daily menu reflects healthy nutritional options regarding all food served on the premises, while also being considerate of children’s individual health and dietary needs. Our outdoor environments grow produce (vegetables and herbs) which is  incorporated into our menus.

We are currently implementing our Autumn\Winter menus for 2017. Our Nutrition, Active Play and Sustainability Newsletters below reflects our program initiatives and our commitment to Physical development, Healthy Eating, Oral Health and Sustainability.
