    Food

    • We provide breakfast, lunch and a snack along with juice or milk daily for all our students.
    • Lunches and infant formula/breastmilk are to be provided by families.
    • All meals must meet USDA nutritional standards and be well-balanced age appropriate foods. A fruit, vegetable, grain, protein and serving of dairy make a well rounded meal.
    • Allergies:
      • If your child has allergies, please discuss them in detail with the teacher and director.
      • For food allergies, a written description signed by parent and doctor must be on file and updated every year. The staff of the center will take appropriate precautions.
      • It is the ELC policy that if a student in the classroom has a severe food allergy, the afflicting food is not allowed in the classroom. Notices will be posted if there is an allergy present. Your cooperation is appreciated to keep our children safe.   
      • If at any time your child develops an allergy, please let us know immediately.
