VMPS Snack Guide & Policy
At Village Montessori we believe in coming together in community over meals.
To create a sense of shared experience, we ask that each family provide a healthy snack for their child's class on a rotating basis throughout the year. Your child’s teacher will provide a snack assignment calendar for your class with assigned weeks. For example, if there are 16 children in your child’s class, then your assignment will occur once every 16 weeks. Snacks may be brought to the main office on your week.

On the back of this guide you will find our suggested snack list for any classroom we deem ‘allergy-friendly’ (unless one of the items is the actual offending allergen).
- As of August 2022 our buildings are nut-free.
- We ask that you do not bring in any snacks with artificial flavors or coloring. Organic snacks are preferred.
- If your child has specific allergies, please speak with our office staff and your teacher. We are very happy to help make alternative arrangements for your child.
- Please also be mindful of restrictions or recommendations as it pertains to certain foods, i.e. popcorn is not appropriate for children under age 4 and grapes/cherry tomatoes must be cut in half for ages 2 and under.
