Early years

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.
