We believe that good nutrition is essential for a child’s physical and mental growth. Our Center provides breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Meal times are a pleasant part of each day where social skills are supported. Children are encouraged to eat and are given the responsibility to decide how much they will eat. No child is forced to eat and no child is denied food as a method of discipline. Monthly menus are posted in each room and may change according to program needs.
In addition to tasty, wholesome meals, there will be a comprehensive program of nutrition instruction which will include cooking experiences carried out by the children. Interesting, fun, tasty experiences with food preparation will help set good nutritional habits for future years as well as teach principles of science and math.
