All of our Full Time Pre School and Junior Kindergarten children are provided with a hot, nutritious lunch and two snacks daily. A reputable company that meets all requirements of the Day Nursery Act, the Canada Food Guide and the City of Toronto’s Operating Criteria caters these meals. Menus are sent home and posted on the parent bulletin board.
Our caterers are very flexible and accommodating, making special individual dietary needs possible. Mealtime is arranged to promote a relaxing and social atmosphere. Children are encouraged to serve themselves, demonstrate positive table manners, clear their place and try different foods. School age children are served an afternoon snack. We work closely with our caterer’s, in order to ensure that all food choices are fresh whole foods that are low in sodium and sugar. Fruits and vegetables are served daily.
