At Natural Start Preschool, we believe that a healthy body is a necessary component to a child’s learning and development. As such, we will provide parents with suggestions for healthy, wholesome, nutritionally sound classroom snacks with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, healthy proteins, and whole grains. Due to the growing incidence of severe nut allergies, parents are asked to avoid bringing any products into the classroom that contain tree nuts, peanuts, or peanut butter. Please see our 2017-18 Parent Handbook for some healthy snack suggestions.
"Time in nature is not leisure time; it's an essential investment in our children's health"
