We believe a healthy mind and body is conducive to effective learning. We have in-house chefs in our staffs who prepares fresh, healthy and tasty vegetarian meals daily for students. Lunch is prepared in our own kitchen with natural ingredients, some from our own garden at the highest standards of cleanliness. One of our motivations to streamline the lunch program (lunch cost included with tuition) is that we have observed children do much better when they sit together and eat from the same menu. In addition, it broadens their range of food choices beyond what they eat at home
Like most things in the Montessori classroom, lunch is a multi-faceted opportunity for growth. It provides occasions for choice making, self-sufficiency and increasing hand strength and dexterity. It's a time to practice social graces, build community and learn table manners.
