Kitchen out of main playroom

Hi all

We have moved premises over the summer. In our new room, we have the toilets adjoined to the room. However, the kitchen isn't. We have to go out of the double doors and the kitchen is along a short hallway. Others users will be using the building whilst we are there (double doors are secured so others users have no access to the children). Is anyone else's setting like this?

 

Ofsted were happy with the situation at the registration visit. She asked about storing lunches and I said we have purchased a fridge for our use to store them. The other problem is now we are running out of storage space to put the fridge! Do others store lunches in the fridge? I'm not too keen on storing them in the kitchen fridge as other users have access to it.

 

Any advice is most welcomed. Thanks

We keep ours in 2 big aldi frozen food bags with cold blocks , they zip up and can take at least 26 lunch boxes x we have our own fridge within the kitchen for snack , milk etc and a big label stating it is the property of the preschool and no items are to be placed in or removed

Never stored lunches in fridge, schools don't.

 

Parents had to use a cool box and put an ice block in .. we had a note to put inside any who came without an ice block, and had a few small ice blocks for parents to buy from us as they always said they could not find them and used it as an excuse not to put one in! No excuses you can buy one from us :rolleyes:

 

We did same as lashes, had big cool bags and put lunch boxes in there with an ice block and put that in our cupboard.

We are a bit like Lashes, firstly we ask that cool bricks are put into lunch bags, and secondly we ordered with our Sainsburys tokens a couple of years back a huge cool bag on wheels - bit like a shopping trolley which is insulated and has space for about 15 lunch boxes and we put them in that we can then wheel whole lot in one go to the lunch table.

We are packaway in a village hall and like you occasionally other users also use the kitchen so all the lunchboxes are stored up in the main room, parents are asked and reminded to use ice blocks as we definitely wouldn't have room in the current fridge or room for a new fridge or room for any other kind of storage for them.......
