Food & Nutrition

Tick Tock Early Learning Center participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program. A delicious and nutritious breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack are freshly-prepared by our two cooks daily and included in the cost of care. Adequate nutrition is critical for brain development and plays a vital role in a child's physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development.  It protects against malnourishment, maintains a healthy immune system, prevents obesity and reduces the risk of chronic disease.  Tick Tock Early Learning Center is committed to placing an importance on good nutrition and physical activity in our program.  Our goal is to not only give the children of Tick Tock nutritious meals and snacks every day, but to teach them how to make healthy decisions on their own. We serve a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, and grains throughout each week, giving children the opportunity to discover foods they may not have access to at home. Our hope is that by discovering a wide variety of healthy, nutritious foods at such a young age, they will be better prepared in the future to make smart food choices. Tick Tock regularly distributes information on healthy eating, nutrition, and exercise to parents throughout the year.  We also partner with the Chester County Food Bank and offer free food to all families in our care on a monthly basis.  

A decrease in funding along with the significant rise in food and employment costs has put our important food program at risk! 

Help us raise the $60,000 we need

to meet the basic needs of our students and ensure healthy early childhood development and lifelong success!
