Nurturing minds and bodies through nutritious meals

A nutritious meal is essential to healthy brain development in children, which is critical to good learning.

Our school kitchen team prepares fresh meals every day on site. There is a daily morning snack, and at lunchtime a soup/salad starter, one main course, and a dessert. Parents are provided with a menu in advance of each month.

Preparing a nice nutritious meal is a daily Montessori practice in which children take ownership. Beginning with our youngest children in the Toddler classrooms, these practices are instilled daily. The children are responsible for the setup each day, including laying a tablecloth or placemats, folding cloth napkins, and carefully carrying glasses. You will often see flowers on the tables that the children have arranged and placed to make the table more beautiful.

Children also participate in the clean-up process, including clearing the table, washing dishes, wiping down tables, and sweeping the floor.
