Your child will receive two nutritious meals and one snack each day. Meals are served family style in the classrooms, allowing children to learn proper table manners, sharing, how to set and clean up a table, how to serve food, and a chance to discuss foods they may have never previously been aware of. Menus are planned to ensure food served meets the daily nutritional requirements of the children.
