All of children in the preschool program will have a "special day" once a month. On the special day the child brings a healthy snack from home to share with the other children, as well as a show and tell for circle time. We are aware of children with food allergies and ask that parents list ingredients if the snack is home made.
More Good Things to Know
Parents provide snacks and lunch for their children. We have microwaves for food that needs to be heated. We provide cow's milk. Parents also need to provide warm clothing for outside play in the winter, several full changes of clothes in case of accidents, sunscreen and bug repellent.
Parents provide babies with breast milk or formula, diapers, wipes, several changes of clothes. Our teachers also work with parents on potty training when the child is starting to show signs of wanting to use the potty.
Babies are on a flexible schedule to meet their changing needs in regards to sleeping and eating.
