Meals and Feeding Schedules
Building Blocks Learning Center provides all of the meals for the children throughout the day and we ask that the parents not bring food into our daycare center. We ask that parents help us in encouraging healthy eating habits in our children by not bringing Fast Food, Donuts, Carbonated Drinks or Sports Drinks. The only exception will be on special occasions. Carbonated drinks are not allowed for the children at any time. If your child brings his lunch, please make sure that it is a balanced meal, i.e. meat, vegetable, and fruit groups.
Our program believes that every child needs good nutrition to grow and develop. Our child care center provides a nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch. In addition, we will serve a
healthy P.M. snack.
Breakfast will be served at 8 AM for our Toddlers and 2 Year olds. 3 and 4 year olds will have breakfast at 8:30 AM. Lunch will be served at 11:30 AM for toddlers and 2 year olds. 12:00 PM for 3 & 4 year olds. Afternoon snack is served at 2:45 PM. After-School students will receive an afternoon snack when they arrive from their school.
Parents/Guardians of infants shall provide prepared formula and baby food and marked with their full name and the date the bottle was prepared. Infants and one (1) year olds will eat their meals in the classroom. All other classes will eat in the lunch room. If your child would like to participate in breakfast, please have them here at their classes scheduled meal time. If you would like to join your child for lunch, please let your child’s teacher know what day you will be here.
We welcome the opportunity to celebrate birthdays with our children. On a child’s birthday the parent may bring a treat to share with the class. When you are planning to do this, please talk with your child’s teacher and daycare management to set up the time that would be most appropriate to participating in any classroom celebrations. No balloons.
