All programs are designed to meet the social, emotional, and developmental needs of all children, regardless of the length of time they spend in the Center. A reasonable balance between active play and quiet activities is pursued as is a balance between indoor and outdoor activities. A food service program, under the auspices of USDA, provides balanced meals/snacks for all children in care.
