Every child under the age of five is entitled to a free 189ml serving of milk whilst in attendance at a registered day care provider for two or more hours a day. This must be a day care service where parents leave their children instead of a care service where the parents stay and play.
Here at Cool Milk we understand that offering nursery milk can be an administrative and financial burden. That’s why we offer a milk scheme that is free, simple and doesn’t use valuable funds or resources that your nursery needs.
Running a milk scheme with Cool Milk is simple and includes many benefits that will save you time and money:
- Fresh local milk.
Free local milk for any child under the age of five in registered day-care, delivered from a local dairy depot.
- No more milk claim paperwork.
We will complete a claim on your behalf and submit it for reimbursement ourselves.
- No more milk bills.
The dairy will invoice us direct, meaning you will never have to pay for any nursery milk again. Free milk that is truly free!
- We deal with the dairy.
We will contact the dairy on your behalf if any queries arise.
- No more waiting.
You will no longer have to wait for reimbursement because we pay the invoice. This will free up your precious resources to spend on other essential items.
- Free fridge on loan (conditions apply)
We will provide a free fridge on loan to help store your milk, keeping it cool and fresh for your pupils.
- Free plastic beakers
A free beaker for every child with a handy ‘fill-to’ line that ensures they receive their 189ml entitlement.
- Educational materials
We can provide educational materials that help teach children all about milk. View a selection of our factsheets here.
- Customer support
Dedicated and award-winning customer services.
