2. We stress good hygiene for children and staff by:

3. We educate children about food:
We give the children experiences in food preparation as a starting point to
a life long active involvement with food. In such activities as pizza making,
cake decorating and making cupcakes we are working towards a rejection
of the fast food mentality and allowing the children to learn it can be fun and
satisfying to be involved in what they eat.
