Block Scheduling
Minimum contract for this program is two morning or two afternoon sessions per week. Many experts feel that regular attendance helps children adjust to a new care setting. If you feel that your child may have difficulty adapting to new people and/or a new place, you may want to consider enrolling for at least three sessions per week.

Nutrition Program

Child with an apple  Meal time is important for both informal nutrition

  education and for pleasant conversation. We post

  menus listing the meal plan one week at a time.

  Meals are prepared on the premises without the 

  use of additives or preservatives. The Center's

  meal program does not include soda, punch,

  candy, beef, pork or hot dogs. Vegetarian children

  are offered an alternate meal on the days that

  meat (chicken, turkey or tuna fish) is served. The Center participates in the California Department of Education's Adult and Childcare Food program. There is no discrimination in the course of food service. Children in attendance are served the same meals at no separate charge, regardless of sex, race, color, handicap, religion, national origin or ancestry.
