Nutrition and Health
We Get Things Started at a Young Age
At Early Connections Learning Centers, we know that healthy, properly-nourished children are ready to learn and thrive.
Nutrition: We serve a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack at all of our Centers daily. These meals exceed the daily nutritional requirements of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Our menus emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and minimize processed foods. We serve hormone-free milk and meals with many organically sourced ingredients.
Mealtime is designed to be pleasant and relaxed. Meals are served family-style with a teacher seated with the children. By serving nourishing food healthfully prepared, we introduce children to a variety of nutritious foods and help establish good eating habits that will last a lifetime.
Health: Our medical staff tracks immunizations, physicals and maintains complete health records for all children and can refer parents to medical and dental assistance in the community. All classroom staff receive training in First Aid, CPR and Universal Precautions.
