Do you believe we are what we eat? If so, you know how important nutrition is.  Now imagine a little body that will more than quadruple in size in just five years.  How important would the food that little body eats be to their growth and development?  If you feel as passionate about children and nutrition as we do, we have the job for you.  We are looking for a caring health-conscious person to join our kitchen team, which provides our students with the important nutrition they need to be the best children they can be. 

You will play a critical part of planning, preparing and serving delicious nourishing meals to our amazing students and staff three times a day.  You will provide these individuals the nourishment required to have a busy day of play, discovery and growth.  In order to fulfill this mission some of your responsibilities will include maintaining a clean and safe work environment and practicing food safety policies.  We are excited to meet candidates that share our desire to positively impact the young children in our community.
