Huckleberry Cheesecake

The Daily Details

Food: Huckleberry Cheesecake provides a hot nutritious meal for your child at lunch and two snacks throughout the course of the day. We not only meet the nutritional guidelines set by the USDA and the D.C. licensing standards but most often exceed them. Great importance is placed on providing healthy food and limiting salt, sugar, preservatives, and artificial color additives. Fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grain breads, and low-fat dairy products are used in planning meals. If your child has special dietary requirements other arrangements can be made. Menus are posted monthly on the parent bulletin board outside the office. Click here for a sample menu.

Clothing: Each child at Huckleberry Cheesecake has his/her own cubby for their personal belongings. Everything your child wears and brings to the center must be labeled. Toddlers and preschoolers should have a complete change of clothes in her/his cubby at all times. Infants should have two complete changes. Clothes and linens soiled at the center will be sent home. We require that blankets and sheets be taken home every Friday to be laundered. Please check your child's clothes regularly to make sure your child has a change of clothes, and that they are seasonally appropriate.
