Nutritious Meals and Snacks
Lady Bug Daycare provides a nutritious hot lunch (created by B oaden’s & Organic Kids Caterin g) and three nutritious snacks. Special dietary restrictions for medical or religious reasons will always be observed. With sufficient notice, the centre will try to accommodate requests for special diets. Parents may be required to provide the necessary foods.
Parents’ Participation in Activities
Parents and staff are encouraged to work together to ensure both parties share similar expectations from the program. Although it is not required that parents participate in the program, from time to time they are encouraged to attend parent-teacher meetings, Christmas Concerts, field trips, special days and so on. Children can benefit from the rich opportunities and experiences that community and neighbourhood outings can provide. For example: tour the local grocery store, visit the Eatonville Library, the Fire Station on Burnhamthorpe/Kipling, etc. Parents will be notified in advanced of such community walks and outings. On these short trips, parents are encouraged to participate.
