The Childcare Food Program, part of the National School Lunch Act, monitors meals served at Lion's Den and provides important nutritional education.


Multiple studies, as well as the word of any teacher you ask, prove that kids must use the skills they’ve learned the previous school year during the summer, or they’ll lose at least some of them.

Reading during the summer is especially important because it helps kids maintain:

  • Reading comprehension skills (the ability to understand and remember what they’ve read)
  • Reading speed
  • Critical thinking skills (It’s important for kids to ask questions about what they’re reading such as What will happen next? or What makes this character act this way?)
  • Spelling skills
