My child has an allergy; can your school accommodate this?
Yes, Ward Preschool is an allergy friendly school. The care and safety of your child is something that we take very seriously.
Any child with an anaphylactic food allergy is required to have an EPI-Pen at school with a Food Allergy Action Plan completed by the child’s physician.
Snack will be provided by Ward Preschool. Ward Preschool strives to be a peanut/tree nut free school. Parents of children in the Extended Day and Young Fives programs are required to provide lunch for their child. Lunches should be nutritious and peanut/tree nut free.
Any outside snacks that are brought in must adhere to our peanut/tree nut free policy. Outside snacks are required to be approved by the Ward Preschool Office before they are allowed to be served in a classroom.
From the classroom level, children with allergies have an individualized snack list that is approved by the parent/guardian at the beginning of the school year. Only those snacks on the approved list are served to your child. If your child has a specific allergy that requires specialized snacks, the parent/guardian may provide an alternative snack per doctor documentation, as long as it adheres to our outside snack policy/procedure.
