Nutrition, An Essential Building Block
A nutritious breakfast is served between 9:00 and 9:30 A.M. A nutritious lunch is served between 12:00 and 1:00 P.M., with an afternoon snack being served at 3:00 P.M.
Baby & Kiddie Galileo makes every effort to provide your child with wholesome, low sugar foods and to introduce your child to a variety of food tastes and textures. Snack foods include cereal and crackers, fruits and vegetables, cheese, juice, and milk. Young infants will be fed according to their own schedule. As they grow and start eating solid foods, their eating needs will change and the eating times will be adjusted toward the group schedule. During lunch, infants not yet eating table food will be served cereals and jarred foods.
As your infant grows s/he will be using their fingers for eating "finger-foods" and working on using utensils. Older infants will be sitting in high chairs with or using a small table with chairs and toddlers will eat their meals at tables. Toddlers and older children will enjoy group meals at tables while learning about the essential food groups and practicing proper eating etiquette.

We foster a community and curriculum which values our diversity and incorporates this diversity into the School’s culture, mission, and curriculum.
Curriculum Materials –
Every effort is made to ensure that learning aids, puppets, books, dolls, pictures, puzzles and other toys reflect the many aspects of our globe.
Many of our teachers speak a second language. They provide your child with exposure to other languages such as Spanish and French. They sing songs, count, play games and learn key phrases that are repeated daily.
Music from many lands is an integral part of the children’s days. Singing and dancing is a daily activity as well as listening to tapes and CDs.
