Child Health Report
At the Parent Child Center, we utilize The Creative Curriculum®
in all classrooms. This curriculum helps teachers plan and implement a
developmentally appropriate program that promotes children's
social-emotional development and learning in the core areas of literacy,
mathematics, science, and social studies.
It combines the latest research and the freshest ideas into a
forward-thinking approach to learning--one that honors creativity and
respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and
relevant for every child in their classrooms.With The Creative Curriculum®,
our program has developed a complete system that promotes positive
outcomes for all children, including English-language learners, children
with disabilities, and advanced learners.

The center provides a morning snack, full hot lunch, and afternoon snack to all enrolled children. Meals and snacks are prepared on-site.
All meals and snacks are well-balanced and high in nutrition. The foods used in
our food service program are closely monitored to exclude excess fat, sugar,
artificial colors, and preservatives.
Meals are served family-style with our staff joining the children at their
tables. Children are encouraged to serve themselves and to try new foods. Table
manners are taught by example, and ample time is allowed for socialization. This
helps mealtime to be a happy, enjoyable experience.
Children learn about nutrition as they help set tables and prepare special
snacks and treats. Classroom units focus on the study of nutrition and the
cultural and ethnic differences in foods.
The weekly menus are carefully reviewed regularly by the Center Director, staff, and by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s Food & Nutrition Service to ensure nutritional content and variety.
