Research has found that to facilitate optimum learning young children need to have a healthy snack between meals to fuel their bodies and brain. With this research in mind, each child will be encouraged daily prepare a snack during work time at the snack center. At this center each child will read and follow the directions in order to prepare their own snack. This activity will not only be fun and tasty but also utilize skills in math, science, language and socialization. As you can see it will be an important part of our curriculum!
In order to have the ingredients for these snacks we will send a note home with each child monthly with the item requested and the date needed. If at any time sending an item is a problem please let us know so we can make other arrangements.
As you can imagine this would be an expensive activity if just a few parents participate. We have found that if everyone participates and sends one specifically asked for item a month it will be a relatively inexpensive, beneficial activity for your child.
Children should bring a clearly labeled, spill proof water bottle daily. Make sure it is filled with water at home each day.
