Food and Nutrition 

A health breakfast, hot homemade lunch and 2 nutritious snacks are served every day. The children are encouraged to help prepare and serve our snacks.  I buy as much local, fresh, and organic products as possible. We get a monthly farm box, and seasonal boxes of fruits and veggies and items from many local farmers. I post a monthly lunch menu at the door and add photos of our lunches to our social media pages often. The children eat the foods I feed my family, so you won't find any Kraft dinner, hot dogs or PB&J on your child's plate. Our meal patterns developed by a local chef ensure healthy, balanced meals and snacks. We can also support gluten-free and vegan diets. ​Water is always available.

Outdoor Play

Learning in the outdoors is a powerful and meaningful platform for life­long learning for all learners. We are outside daily year round. In addition to free play and our wood chip insulated playground, the children have time in our sensory garden. Our yard includes a herb and vegetable garden, climbing plants and vines, bird and pollinator feeders and homes, and a child-friendly edible garden, providing a magical space for outdoor skills, environmental/ ecological education, and a place for extended nature exploration. It allows little ones to take developmentally-appropriate risks can help them learn how to safely navigate their environment and explore the six categories of risky play.

It’s a rather unfortunate fact that children today are becoming alarmingly disconnected from nature and the great outdoors. While the advancement in technology has made leaps and bounds in the classroom environment, it does nothing to help foster a healthy appreciation for the Earth itself. That’s why we make it our mission to connect children with the world around them by spending time outdoors in nature engaging in free exploration and by including Earth stewardship in our OEE and indoor programs.

Eco Conscious Care 

With resources dwindling and the population growing, leading a sustainable lifestyle is more important than ever, especially when it comes to our children. Teaching them how to live sustainably early in their life can help them make more environmentally conscious choices as they grow.

“It is necessary, then, to give the child the possibility of developing according to the laws of his nature, so that he can become strong, and, having become strong, can do even more than we dared hope for him.”

— Maria Montessori
