Our Cook prepares meals fresh daily.
Serving breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. 

All meals served meet nutritional requirements. 

Meals are served in each classroom and enjoyed in a relaxed social setting.  Monthly menus are available and posted in Center.

Meals are served Family Style in the Pre-K Classroom.  Staff model healthy eating practices as they sit with children during meal times.  Children pass food and serve themselves, allowing them to decide how much and what they will eat.  This type of meal service is a fun and exciting approach to teaching good, lasting nutritional choices.  This is considered an ideal method of offering food to young children.
