Barry Beckett Children’s Centre is a nut-free Centre. The Centre will accommodate children with allergies and special dietary needs. Halal meat products are used to meet the needs of the community. The Centre cook prepares three meals a day. We offer a vegetarian option that closely resembles the main meal. Fresh drinking water is available throughout the day both indoors and out. Milk is also offered at morning and afternoon tea.
