Meals & Snacks
We understand, at times, children tend not to eat breakfast at home or perhaps a parent is running late, in these cases we do provide a healthy breakfast for your child of cereal with milk, hot oatmeal or pancakes/waffles and juice. Breakfast will be provided if your child arrives before 8:30 AM.
Your child’s needs and desires are very important to us. We find that because children have different tastes, ethnic backgrounds and even food allergies it is difficult to cater to every child’s needs. It is requested that parent provide their children with home lunch. This ensures both the parent and the center that your hungry child will be happy and full. A happy child is an energetic learning child.
Nutritional snacks will be provided three times a day. Our center follows the USDA Child Care Food Program. Juices, milk and spring water will also be provided.
If your precious one is having a birthday, we encourage parents to send cupcakes or cake so they can celebrate with classmates.
We accept children from two years old that are not yet potty trained. Your child should be able to inform of their need to go to the bathroom, willing to inform the teacher or assistant and have been eager to continue to train.
Our facility is equipped for diaper changing so we provide support to parents who are training and we continue the training that is given at home. Children must come to center using pull-ups and with the necessary change of clothes, wipes and a potty seat to fit the toilet.
Please be aware that many children by age two are eager to use the bathroom and are more successful, however, there are some children that are not prepared to be potty trained. In those cases, you must be encouraging and persistent in order to have some success in this stage of your child’s life.
Clothing should be easy to manage to encourage self-help and independence skills. Buckles and suspenders, when in a hurry to use the restrooms, may create a problem, so please provide easy to remove clothing. Parents are required to bring Pull-Ups, one or two sets of clothing, towel and baby wipes.
