Why Family Style Dining?
Family style dining is a part of each mealtime at Learning Zone preschools in Murfreesboro. Our students learn to serve themselves and eat together, along with their education engineers, for an interactive hands-on mealtime experience.
How Meal Time Fosters Child Development
Family style dining fosters development on so many levels in the early childhood setting. By allowing the children to practice serving themselves on a daily basis they touch on social/emotional development as they learn the routine of passing not only the food, but also helping with the cups, plates and utensils.
Engaging Language and Motor Skills
They increase their fine motor skills as they gain better control over the serving utensils. Their language skills emerge as they engage in conversations with their education engineers and other children. Their cognitive development is also challenged as they exercise decision making and problem solving skills.
We chose to make the environmentally conscious decision to use real cups, plates and utensils to enhance the mealtime experience even further. This hands-on approach is a positive learning experience and an integral part of the Learning Zone program!
