Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks are included in the cost of tuition at PK. The food program is nut free. Meals are an essential part of the program when children learn table manners, are exposed to new foods and are asked to try all foods that are offered so they learn the importance of eating a varied diet.
Our food vendor makes every effort to provide organic food options and to accommodate personal, dietary, cultural and religious preferences.
*Participation in the food program is strongly encouraged, but not required. There is no tuition break for families who choose to opt out of the food program.
PK believes that each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, expressive and physical development should be enhanced and fostered each day.
Our program is play- and project-based and child-centered. Our curriculum emerges from the interests and natural curiosity of our children. Research shows that children learn best through play and access to a dynamic, enriching environment. Our goal at PK is to provide children with materials, activities and an inviting environment that will foster their growth in all areas of development and ensure their readiness for the next stage of life.
