A basic human characteristic is the desire to share meals together. This is a special time that allows the opportunity to build relationships and develop interpersonal skills.
At La Maison Montessori Kingston your child will learn this important social custom. The teachers will show your child how to set the table, sit down, to clear the table, do the dishes, as well as proper etiquette and manners. In addition, the children help our cook Carolina to prepare meals and snacks.
All meals are prepared on site using healthy foods. Each ingredient is selected and cooked to offer your child a variety of flavors. Except for Wednesdays when the children eat fish, all meals are vegetarian. These are always composed of a starter, a main course and a dessert. Our menus are inspired by traditional French recipes.
Please note: La Maison Montessori Kingston is NOT a peanut free environment.
À tous, bon appétit!
