A Typical Day

"Each family is expected to provide a snack each month or contribute $3.00 towards the purchase of snacks. All snacks must be of nutritious value.
There will be a morning snack as well as an afternoon snack.
Milk can be purchased for $0.20 for each snack time. Also, parents can purchase milk for lunch if a child brings in his own lunch.
If you would like to send in your own drinks, snacks, and food for your child alone, please make sure that they are ready to eat. We do not have the utensils to cut and clean food. Also be sure that your child's name is visible.
We at The Sycamore Center have decided to have lunches available upon request for your child. Dona Sherman has agreed to plan our menus, cook and deliver our lunches for the cost of $1.50 a day. This includes milk. You must sign up for the week's lunches on your first day of care. Payment must also be made at this time. A staff person will instruct in the proper way to sign up for lunches.
You do not haveto purchase lunches. If you prefer, please feel free to pack a lunch for your child. Make sure everything is labeled.
The Center is equipped witha refrigerator, freezer, and microwave. We do not have room to store food for the children.
Any lunches brought in from home that must be heated will be done so in a microwave and must be in a microwavable container. A stove is not available at our facility.
