Earthplace Preschool Policies and Procedures
Lunch Club is an optional program for children in the Chickadees program at an additional charge of $15 per day.
Lunch Club runs from 12 noon to 1:00 pm, and is only available for children in the Chickadees program. All other classes will have lunch at school as part of their classroom time. Extended care options are available for children in the Hummingbirds (Threes), Robins (Threes/Fours), Woodpeckers (Fours), and Falcons (Fives) classes from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
The Lunch Club program is an extension of your child's preschool experience.
During the free choice section of Lunch Club the children may use the block area, easel, art center, book area, housekeeping area, puzzle area, sensory table, and the activities set up by the teachers. These activities may include art experiences, science experiences, manipulatives, and board games.
The children wash their hands before and after lunch. At lunch time the teachers sit and eat with the children, help them learn to open their lunches, and encourage independence. The teachers also encourage conversation amongst the children and model healthy eating habits.
Although we prefer that you sign up for Lunch Club a week in advance, you may sign up the day prior if there is still room. The daily limit for lunch club is 8. Please sign up at the front desk.
