How are meals prepared?Our meals are created in our very own kitchen with our James Beard award winning chef/nutritionist. After becoming a father Chef Michael learned the value in providing enjoyable meals for children. Our Chef creates healthy, enjoyable meals that respects dietary needs, preferences, and infuses culture. Our food is locally outsourced including vegetables from our own garden. Meals are included in tuition.
