11:20 – 1:00 pm
Lunchtime. The students are divided into two groups for lunch. Half of the class eats first while the other half is outdoors.
At noon the children switch places. This allows everyone plenty of time to eat and plenty of time to play!
Lunch is a process where we encourage the children to eat safely and with good manners. Children help with set-up of placemats, napkins and cups each day.
In the clean up process we encourage children to bring home the food they did not eat, rinse their dishes and place them in the dirty dish bucket, throw away their own garbage and tidy up the table that they were eating at. This process is essential for children on their quest for independence.
