Nutrition

Our Nutrition-First Menu

Your child’s body and mind rely on nutrition to grow and develop properly. To ensure your child has the fuel they need to succeed, we have partnered with a Registered Nutritionist. We have built a menu that features well-balanced meals and snacks with a high nutritional value.

We use fresh and locally-sourced ingredients as often as possible when preparing food for your child. With a four-week rotating schedule and seasonal modifications, children get to experience a wide variety of dishes and snacks. In an effort to instil healthy eating habits in children, we make the conscious effort to reduce their salt and sugar intake.

The Children’s House Montessori will do whatever we can to accommodate any dietary restrictions your child may have due to medical or cultural reasons. All of our locations are nut-free facilities.

What Sets Us Apart

Based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, our curriculum is centred on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. The Montessori approach develops independent thinking, motivation, persistence and discipline by allowing children to respond to their natural drive to work and learn.

Our dedicated and passionate early childhood educators deliver an innovative, engaging and proven curriculum that ignites a love of learning and inspires and encourages individuality in every TCH child. Their nurturing and attentive approach offers each child a home-away-from-home experience.

Two-way communication is important. Monthly newsletters, parent interviews, open houses and our proprietary app (BrightPath Connect™) are designed to increase the interaction between our centres and families.

Children need nutrition to grow in both mind and body. Believing that food choices throughout childhood fuel life long eating habits, our menu is crafted by a Registered Nutritionist, is prepared in-house daily and reflects those beliefs.
