Meals & Snacks
Breakfast/Snacks: We provide breakfast from 8:00 AM- 8:30 AM and an afternoon snack around 3:30PM. Each snack will be nutritious. Food may be brought into the center for special occasions only, such as birthday or holiday parties. Menus are posted on bulletin board outside of office.
Lunch: Parents are required to provide a lunch for their child. The lunches need to meet the criteria in the attached Nutritional Requirements pamphlet. The center will provide vitamin D milk. Because our license is contingent on each child being provided with a lunch that contains the attached criteria, we ask that this be followed on a daily basis. Please inform the staff in writing if your child has any food allergies or dietary restrictions. All food items must be stored in a lunch box/bag clearly marked with your child’s name.
The lunches will be stored in the classroom, please be sure to include ice packs in your child’s lunch if foods need to be kept cold. Please note that there is not a microwave or way of heating a lunch. Parents need to plan accordingly. If a lunch does not meet the nutritional requirements, then the center is mandated to provide the additional food(s). These will be provided at a charge of $1.00 per item.
