Lunch Program


This is Why


We cannot stress enough how important it is that children eat a well-balanced diet.  A healthy diet helps children to learn, grow, and gives them the energy they need to get through their day.  So rather than stress, we provide lunch and snacks!  No need for parents or caregivers to worry about what they will provide for lunch for children in the Childcare 3 to 5 and School Age Programs!  Children in the Childcare 3 to 5 program are provided two snacks and a lunch every day and children in the School Age Program are provided the same during all school breaks (Non-instructional school days, Spring Break and Summer)! 
We don’t provide lunch for the Infant Care Program as children at a young age can be sensitive to a wide range of foods … better that Mom or Dad take care of this just to be sure!


What We Provide

We use fresh, healthy foods, including in-season produce, and always home-made main courses!  Your child(ren) will be provided with lunch and two snacks daily.  

We are happy to provide breakfast if needed as well.  Please speak to us if you require this additional service.

Meals are served family-style and each child is encouraged to try each food that is offered. Lunch is served at 12:00 pm, and snacks at 9:00 am, and 3:00 pm.  Food is only served at these times to avoid disrupting the daily routine and other scheduled activities.  Children who choose not to eat will need to wait until the next meal or snack. The timing of the meals are set so that children go no more than three hours without being offered food.  If your child will be absent during a scheduled meal, you will need to make sure to feed him/her before arrival.

Drinks

Milk is served with each meal.  Water is served at snack times.  Water is not limited and is available throughout the day.  Fruit juice is only a very occasional treat and then only during snacks and on field trips.

Allergies

We are a strict, Nut Free facility, but because many food allergies and sensitivities can result in severe or life-threatening reactions, we require that you indicate any allergies or sensitivities your child may have.  All efforts will be made to prevent your child coming into contact with the food in question.
