Kitchen Classroom

Did you know ... Preschoolers consume 50-75% of their daily food needs while in childcare?

 

At the Children’s Discovery Center, we serve Breakfast, Lunch, and Snack each day to all of our preschoolers and staff. We offer a family-style setting, to kids ages 2-5. Our students are engaged in the whole process: scooping/pinching their food, pouring the drink, and clearing their dishes. The CDC is one of many in the state that participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Our Head Cook introduces a safe mealtime environment to promote healthy growth and development in our preschoolers.

Every Other Friday, our Head Cook puts on a cooking class for our preschoolers.
