A child must be 33 months (2 years, 9 months) by September 1, or 3 years old by December 1, for two years in our Rainbow classroom. A child must be 4 years old by September 1 to enroll in our Red Barn classroom.
In partnership with Epicurean Group, the Community Lunch Program aims to connect our community, maintain equity, promote healthy choices, and align with our green values.
All snacks and lunch will be provided by the school and served by adults in the child’s classroom.
Meals are prepared in accordance with USDA guidelines and will include items from at least two food groups for snack and multiple food groups for lunch. A menu will be posted online each month. We provide 1% milk at lunch.
A variety of food will be available at each meal, so children will have the opportunity to make some choices for themselves. Children are encouraged to try new foods, but their boundaries are respected and honored. Meal times can be deeply fulfilling, sparking authentic conversations between children and adults alike.
All children are given the option to nap or rest in a separate and quiet nap room for true sleepers. All others are invited to engage in “downtime” activities to inspire introspective, reflective, and quiet work.
