Nutrition Information

Our centres provide nutritious morning and afternoon snacks and lunch based on Canada’s Food Guide.  Menu’s run on a four week rotation to provide a wide variety of selection for your little one.  We are guided and approved by strict Early Years Branch guidelines.

We are a nut/peanut free facility. 

Please be sure to inform Early Childhood Educators of allergies or dietary restrictions.  A plan will be developed which may involve parents bringing in a portion or all of the child’s special diet. 

We consider meal time to be a social event.  Children are invited to join their teachers at the table where we encourage conversation and social interactions as we enjoy our “family” dining experience.  Children are offered the opportunity to serve themselves (with guidance), and are expected to participate in tidying up afterwards.  

At the YMCA Child Development Centres, we offer every opportunity for one to grow in.  Children are viewed as competent and capable, in hopes that new levels of confidence will be reached throughout the day.
