About Mealtime:

  • Meals are served family style. Children are encouraged to serve themselves if they are able to do so. While children are encouraged to try at least one bite of each food item, they are not forced to eat all the things they don't like. A child may request seconds and the teacher will encourage healthy portions and balanced choices by modeling them.
  • Developmentally appropriate table manners and etiquette will be modeled and encouraged for all children. We would like to be sensitive and considerate of all family cultures on this matter.
  • Teachers sit at the table with children during meal times as good role models. Any parents who are visiting the Center at meal /snack times are also encouraged to sit at the table beside their child/children. 
  • If your child will not be here during the meal and snack times, please make alternate arrangements for your child to eat. We are unable to hold meals for your child, due to health regulations.
  • We request that parents do not take food out of the Center. Please give children enough time to finish before leaving.
