MEALS

Active young minds and bodies require the right fuel to flourish. At our preschool, we understand the importance of nourishing our students throughout the day.

Morning Snack: Prepared by Happy Hall
To kickstart the day, Happy Hall prepares a nutritious morning snack. We offer a variety of wholesome choices that energize and engage young minds.

 

Lunch: Meal from Home
For lunch, families are required to pack a meal. This allows for customized nutrition, catering to each child's dietary preferences and needs.

 

Afternoon Snack: Prepared by Happy Hall
To maintain energy and focus through the afternoon, Happy Hall provides an afternoon snack. We offer healthy, tasty options that expose children to new flavors and textures in a fun and educational way.

Mealtime is more than just about eating; it's a crucial time for learning and bonding. Our snacks, served family-style, foster a sense of community and sharing among children. This setup allows them to practice essential skills such as passing, sharing, and enjoying food together. It’s a daily opportunity for our children to strengthen social bonds and develop important interpersonal skills in a joyful, communal setting.

 

Through these moments, we aim to not only nourish their bodies but also to enrich their social learning experiences, ensuring they develop patience, gratitude, and the joy of sharing meals with friends. These experiences are integral to building a foundation for healthy eating habits and strong interpersonal relationships.

OUTDOOR EXPLORATION

We offer a cozy and thoughtfully designed outdoor space that's exclusively for our preschoolers. While more intimate in size, this area is rich with opportunities for exploration, learning, and play. Separate from the school-age playgrounds, it provides a secure and tailored environment that's just right for young learners.

We believe deeply in the importance of outdoor play for a child's development, recognizing that the quality of experiences often transcends the need for vast spaces. Our outdoor area is a testament to this belief, offering a nurturing setting where children can engage with nature, develop physical skills, and foster social connections. Even in a more compact setting, the benefits of fresh air, imaginative play, and environmental discovery remain immense.

This special outdoor space at Ocean Shore is designed to maximize every moment of outdoor exploration. It's a place where children can learn about their world in a personal, hands-on way, developing resilience and curiosity. Here, every corner is an opportunity for growth and joy, proving that great things indeed come in small packages.
