The Lunch Bunch program is open to children in the AM or PM Sunshine and Rainbow classes and meets between morning and afternoon classes (from 11:30 am-12:30 pm). Children are encouraged to share experiences with each other as they eat a lunch brought from home. After lunch, both indoor and outdoor planned activities round out the hour. Lunch Bunch is also available on a drop-in basis, for a fee, when space in the program allows and placement is appropriate.
The Munch Bunch program is open to children in the AM and PM Bunny and Beehive classes. Munch Bunch is similar to Lunch Bunch, though there is not an option to drop-in.
The Later Gators and Little Gators programs offer after-school activities until 5:00 p.m. The curriculum is designed to be relaxed and creative, thoughtfully balanced between physical activities (playground time and games) and individual activities (art, cooking, puzzles, and board games). If space is available, Later Gators and Little Gators are available on a drop-in basis for a fee. Arrangements must be made through the Director of Programs, preferably one day in advance.
