HEALTHY FOODS, HAPPY CHILDREN!

We believe that children who are well nourished are happier, more energetic, enthusiastic and ready to learn! A great deal of care and thought is placed into the healthy snacks we serve your child.

Town & Country serves a healthy morning and afternoon snack each day to all young toddlers, toddlers and preschool age children. Milk is served at lunchtime, regular or low-fat depending on the age of the child. Each classroom has its own refrigerator to store children’s lunches, as well as a microwave to warm food if necessary.

Town & Country collaborates with a Certified Nutritionist to develop and continually assess our snack menus. Our centers follow the State recommended guidelines for children’s nutrition. We serve a variety of healthy whole foods to your child. Fresh fruits and vegetables such as apples, pears, bananas, green and red peppers, and green beans are served on a regular basis. Whole grain crackers, cheese, and yogurt are also served.

Our classroom curricula include conversations and activities about health and nutrition, because we know that good health goes hand-in-hand with learning. Teachers create and develop Learning Experience Plans that educate children about food – where it comes from, how it grows, how it tastes and why it is important to us. Our goal is to develop your child’s palate for healthy food choices in order to establish a lifetime of good eating habits.
