Farm to PreSchool
Healthy and nutritious foods are key to a child's development.
We proudly bring food to life with our Farm-to-table garden each year.
Through this program, every student participates in recycling, gardening, and composting.
We have constructed a living wall that consists of at least 100 plants (fruits, vegetables and herbs) that provides produce for our nutritional program. As the living wall develops, we hope to grow enough to make fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs available for our families to take home and incorporate into their nutritional routines and lifestyles. We would like to help facilitate the health and well-being of our children AND their families.
\We also incorporate “Try-Days” into our monthly calendar. With this initiative, our children are served a new, healthy vegetable-centered meal, or a unique and different way to prepare a vegetable each month, and then we celebrate trying something new and healthy. On “Try-Days” recipes are sent home to our parents to encourage them to prepare healthier options at home as well.
