Proper nutrition plays a crucial role in the health and development of children. Nutritious foods are offered throughout the day to ensure your children are getting the nourishment and energy they need to learn, grow, and be healthy while in our care. Therefore, our meals are prepared in-house and carefully planned to meet and exceed USDA nutrition guidelines. In addition to providing access to nutritious foods, mealtimes are an opportunity for our students’ to learn and develop social and self-help skills which is why they are encouraged to set the table, clear their plates, wash their hands before and after meals, and use child-size utensils while enjoying conversation and interactions with their teachers and classmates.
