Nutrition

Mealtimes are a highlight of our program at The Treehouse and help to anchor our Daily Rhythm. Our meals and snacks allow us time to gather as we appreciate the company of our friends and the gift of health. Before each meal, we sit around the table to tell stories, sing songs, give thanks and bless our food.

The Treehouse provides a vegetarian, almost exclusively organic snacks: 2 snacks per day for full day children and 1 morning snack per day for half day children. Lunch is provided on Fridays. See food rates HERE.

We are happy to accommodate children with allergies, intolerances and some special diets.
