“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”

— Luciano Pavarotti

Food is about more than simply “feeding” – it is the mechanics and foundation of one’s entire vitality! Food is the cornerstone of our life force. Eating well supports us in all areas of our lives, enabling us to learn, be active and engaged, feel good and thrive!

We believe in nurturing the body and a healthy, mindful relationship to food. We connect children to where their food comes from, instilling a deep and lasting appreciation of whole foods. Through our Daily Meal Program we provide delicious and dynamic meals prepared by our in-house Holistic Certified Nutritional Practitioner (HCNP). We use whole, natural ingredients that are organic and locally sourced, focussing on seasonal ingredients and the natural life cycle of foods.

Because food is an integral part of our curriculum – children are engaged with all stages of the meal from the origin of the foods we eat, stages of preparation, communal enjoyment, and clean-up.

We also accommodate vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free diets.
