We are very fortunate to partner with Catering Thyme, a local catering company located within the community of Beau Rivage. Each month, a menu is sent home to all children in the Maples classroom and up. Parents have the option of ordering every day (Mon-Thurs), or just certain days for a cost of $3.75 per meal. Catering Thyme delivers the hot meals just before lunch time and they are distributed to the children who ordered for that day. If you prefer to pack your child’s lunch that is no problem at all! The good news is…if you happen to be having “one of those mornings” and you forget the lunch or simply don’t have time to pack it…we can order a hot lunch for your child that day as long as we do so by 9:00 a.m.
As you can see from the menu, there are a variety of kid friendly meals to chose from. If you want to order lunch for your child but they don’t like the main course for the day, you can always substitute with a hamburger, cheeseburger, grilled cheese, or chicken sandwich. The substitution would take the place of the main course and all side items would remain the same.
What about Fridays? Fridays at The Learning Tree are Pizza Day! The cost for pizza is $3 which is given directly to your child’s teacher. In addition to the $3, you are asked to provide 2 sides consisting of fruit and/or vegetables, as well as a beverage. If you choose not to participate, you would pack your child’s lunch as usual.
