A writing center is available for children to practice using a writing instrument.

Snack: The parent responsible for the kitchen also prepares a nutritious snack for all the children. The snack consists of a protein source, a carbohydrate and a fruit or vegetable. Multicultural snacks are common here and the children get a fabulous exposure to many different types of healthy foods.

Allergies/Special Diets: There are pictures and detailed descriptions of the children with food allergies and special dietary requirements. The school is a "NO NUTS" zone. Multiple precautions are taken to double check food trays (by 3 adults) before putting food in front of children.
