To make our Discovery School Based Child Care Program a safe environment for all children, parents should be aware that there may be children attending the center with severe life-threatening food allergies (anaphylaxis). Some children are severely allergic to peanut products, including peanut butter, nuts, shellfish, eggs and milk, known to cause severe reactions. We want to inform you that exposure to a tiny amount of these items could be potentially serious and life threatening to a child with the allergy.
The key to preventing an emergency situation is diligent avoidance of the allergen. All food items served to the children will be purchased and prepared by the centre staff and/or centre Caterer. We apologize for any inconvenience, but Discovery does not allow homemade baked goods into our sites due to allergies, for example birthday cupcakes will not be allowed if baked at home. (Once-a-month Discovery celebrates the periodic birthdays for the children at the sites, and prepare some form of baked treats for all of the children to enjoy.) Our concern is that some foods may contain hidden ingredients that may pose a serious risk for the children with the allergen. Some parents prefer for their child/ren to have additional snacks during the after-school program, if this is the case please consult with the centre Supervisor and we will make arrangements to meet your needs. All food brought from home must have your child's name on it in order for us to allow them to eat it (name on lunch bag). All foods brought out must be shown to the teacher for approval to keep everyone safe.
Discovery is intent on fulfilling the needs of the children in our care. With this in mind we offer a nutritious breakfast, lunch, a.m. and p.m. snack.  We strive to meet the requirements of the C.C.E.Y.A. and the guidelines set out by Health Canada.
Children are encouraged to try all foods served. If your child has food allergies please make sure that the centre staff are informed and kept up to date about their allergies.  Special food requirement arrangements can be made with the Supervisor of your child's program. Special diets may require parents bringing in lunch for their child.
