Lunch Bunch

Lunch bunch is an after school ‘class’ in which the children                  are introduced to new curriculum topics through stories and  hands-on activities. The schedule for the lunch bunch class     includes:

*Outside play time (weather permitting)

or STEM Building Centers

*Lunch: Children bring a lunch to eat at school.

*Circle time: The topic is introduced through books, videos, and discussion.

*Activity time: Children will be engaged in projects, experiments, and activities to learn more about the topic.

*Free play, clean up and dismissal: If time allows, the children will have free play time.

This year lunch bunch will begin at 11:30am for 3’s and 11:40am for 4’s. Dismissal will be at 1:15pm. The maximum class size is 15 with one teacher and one aide.

Children may attend as many sessions as they are registered for. The fee for the lunch bunch $20 per session.

For each class there will be a teacher and aide in the classroom working together with the children. Once we have the list of children registered for the month, we will make a class list and let you know what room your child will be in for lunch bunch.


Registration will be entirely online this year through Sign Up Genius. Each month has a sign up on Sign Up Genius. You will need to sign up by the date listed below. We have planned for two classes on each lunch bunch date. If both classes are full, please add your child to the wait list on Sign Up Genius. If we have 10 children on the waitlist, then an additional lunch bunch class will be added. You will be notified asap if a class is added.


Payment for lunch bunch will be switching to the Brightwheel app used for tuition. You will be billed for the dates you sign up for on a monthly basis. Payment will be due five days after the ‘bill’ is posted to your account.



*Due to food allergies, any food with peanuts CAN NOT be sent to school.   Yes, that means no peanut butter sandwiches. PLEASE LABEL any sandwich that may look like peanut butter, but is an alternative!

*Less is more! Please send a basic lunch, not a buffet! A drink, sandwich, chip, fruit/vegie and cookie is more than enough! We need to eat in 20 minutes!

*Label items in the order you would like them eaten: 1 on the sandwich; 2 on fruit; 3 on the chips, 4 on the cookie. It gives your child clear   direction on what to eat first! We encourage them to eat healthy foods first, saving sweets for last.
