Children First Learning Center Foundation provides 2 meals and 2 snacks every day. Food service starts at 7:00 a.m. with a morning snack, and then we move on to breakfast, followed by lunch and finally concluding with afternoon snack. Meals and snacks are prepared in our full service commercial kitchen. We have a full time cook that prepares all of our meals and snacks, and our food menu has been approved by the state of Indiana in accordance with our license. Here at CFLC we strive to provide nutritious meals that the children love.


We are very excited to be able to offer our families such a wonderful outside space for their children to enjoy while at school. We have three large play areas adding up to more than 20,000 square feet of outside fun. We have a large grass area to conduct organized games such as parachute, kick ball and obstacle course. On what the kids at CFLC call the “big side” we have playground equipment with slides, a sandbox, and a hill with a great tunnel passing through and a large bike area for children to ride trikes, scooters and other ride-on toys that are available at the center. On our toddler side we have a great shade system to keep our little ones cool so they too can enjoy outside time. CFLC’s playground is a great extension of our classrooms, a wonderful place for children to explore, play with friends and get exercise.
