Lunch

We ask that children in all sessions bring their own lunches to school. Prepare foods so that your child can be self-sufficient in feeding him/herself. For example, cut fruits and vegetables and send oranges and tangerines peeled unless your child can already do this for him/herself. We ask that your child’s lunchbox be labeled with their name, and please don't include chips, cookies, or sweets of any kind.

Suggested Lunch Items

  • Slices of hearty bread (rye, pumpernickel, whole wheat, oat, etc.)
  • Slices of vegetables, raw, cooked, pickled, all kinds (carrot sticks, baby carrots, celery sticks, cucumber slices, string beans, baby corn, cherry tomatoes, peas, beets)
  • Slices of fruit, all kinds (avocado, apple, pear, banana, orange, tangerine, peach, plum, grapes, grapefruit, blueberries, strawberries)

Snacks

In the Montessori classroom, children can often be seen having individual snack with a friend at a special table with flowers. This fosters grace and courtesy as well as friendships. In order for our school to promote this activity, we ask that two families be responsible for each month’s snack during the year. This entails snack for 15-20 children, depending on enrollment. A parent sign-up will be posted the second week of school; the school will provide snacks for the first week or until we can get the family snack program set up. Montessori Centre will provide juice throughout the year.

Suggested Snack Items

  • Raisins
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Fresh fruit
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Graham crackers
  • Bagels
  • Dried fruits

Suggestions are welcome!   Please, no peanut butter or nuts.
