Food and Nutrition 

We pride ourselves on cooking great home-cooked meals. Kids come back even after being gone for years for home cooked lunches. We encourage healthy eating. 

We accommodate vegan, vegetarian, non-dairy and all sorts of special diets. All meals are age appropriate, are prepared fresh each day. They are compliant with the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program guidelines and are free from allergens, dyes and food additives. They are served at a comfortable and safe serving temperature.


We use the safest vehicles available for child transportation. We pick up from school and drop off at home from 4:00 until 5:30. There is no additional cost for school transportation. We service the following schools:

  • Foster Elementary

  • Thompson Elementary

  • Whidby Elementary

  • Kipp Peace on M L K

  • Peck Elementary

We Only Use Buses (not vans) to Transport Our Children.

We are constantly monitoring the status of the Covid-19 virus. We will continue to weigh the risk to our children and staff with our service to the community. Disinfecting protocols have been increased and all children will be screened for fevers and coughs on entry to the center daily. No staff or child will be allowed to attend with signs of any symptoms. If a child exhibits symptoms of a cold or virus while they are at the center, they must remain out for a minimum of 72 hours and may be required to get a release from a doctor. Any child or staff with a slight fever, runny nose or watery eyes will not be allowed to attend.  We will continue to remain open until further notice.
