Lunch Bunch is available to children enrolled in the part-day 3s and 4s classes. This program is offered Monday through Friday, for one hour before PM classes arrival time or one hour after AM classes departure time. Lunch Bunch is ideal for children who will enjoy eating a lunch that is brought from home while socializing with peers and CDS teachers. If time allows, children may play when they are finished eating.
Children may enroll in Lunch Bunch and ACE programs on a regular basis or on a drop in basis.
[My daughter] LOVES Do Drop In.... It is unbeatable in terms of the quality time she spends there and I can't even start to tell you what a difference it makes for parents. It is such a peace of mind to know she is at CDS." -Current CDS Parent
