Food Allergies and Sensitivities
The director at HVP has extensive experience with food allergies and food sensitivities and is happy to accommodate children with special diets and ensure HVP is a safe environment for all.
We pride ourselves on providing balanced, nutritious, organic, non-GMO snacks here at preschool. Educating the children on food and healthy eating is also one of our priorities. The children bring a lunch from home every day that can be kept in the school refrigerator.
Eco-Healthy Child Care Certified
A national program that ensures child care settings are as happy, healthy, safe, and green as possible by reducing children’s exposure to toxins. Our school uses only Earth friendly, perfume-free cleaning products and hand soaps. We do not use bleach, scented candles, or air fresheners. We use No-VOC latex paints and do not paint when children are present. Teachers and the preschoolers only use non-toxic art supplies approved by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI).
Twice a day, every day, our preschoolers play outside – biking, sledding, swinging, and climbing. Only rain or zero degree windchill keeps us indoors. Lucky for us, we have our own indoor “sport court” large enough to ride bikes, play with our parachute, and throw balls.
We provide multiple opportunities for outside specialists to visit our classroom, such as the zoomobile, a music specialist, and our local fire fighters.
Unique to our program is the rotation of all learning tools and toys EVERY WEEK. The kids cannot wait to come each Monday morning and see what is set up in the school. This keeps things new and exciting for both the students and for the teachers!
Many children suffer from food allergies and food sensitivities so we ask that your child bring non-edible “treats” to share with their friends on their birthday, such as stickers or coloring books.
HVP offers 2 different one week summer camps for its preschoolers. Summer camp is an opportunity for preschoolers to see their classmates again over the summer and a great transition for new students before they begin in the fall.
