Children participate in snack time daily. It is a chance to refuel and socialize with peers. Daily questions are encouraged as we play various games to stimulate peer interaction. We focus on question words (who, what, when, where, why, and how) to act as conversation starters. This teaches children the difference between a
statement and a question; a very hard concept at this age.
We have a snack schedule so that children are encouraged to eat from all of the food groups as we promote heath and nutrition. We sort foods into groups on a daily basis to link numeracy concepts with nutrition. There are teachable moments in every aspect of our program.
