We advocate an ‘open’ snack policy, where children are free to have their snack when they are hungry. This allows your child to finish their ‘work’ without interruption, and reduces the number of transitions, which can be difficult for some children. We believe meals should be a time for engaging in social interaction, and usually, children will join their friends as soon as they see them washing their hands and getting ready to enjoy a snack.
Eating with friends is an important part of each child’s social development, however we do not encourage sharing of food due to potential for allergic reactions. As we are also a “Nut Free Zone” please do not send nuts or nut products of any kind in your child’s snack. We provide a specific table for eating and remind children to wash their hands before eating snack. We encourage nutritious snacks such as fruit, vegetables, cheese, crackers, muffins, and juice, water or milk. Please send snacks in recyclable containers that are labeled with your child’s name (we try to reduce garbage and increase the children’s awareness of the environment). Thank you!
