Maria Montessori, the pioneer of the Montessori method, held a deep conviction regarding the significance of providing good food for children. She believed that nutrition played a pivotal role in a child's overall development and well-being. Montessori emphasized that children's physical health was intrinsically linked to their mental and emotional growth. She advocated for the provision of wholesome and nutritious meals in educational settings, recognizing that a balanced diet not only supported a child's physical growth but also enhanced their cognitive abilities, concentration, and ability to engage in meaningful learning experiences. Montessori's commitment to nurturing the whole child encompassed the idea that quality food was essential to creating an environment where children could flourish intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
We give the child nourishing food so that his little body may grow, and in just the same way we must provide him with suitable nourishment for his mental and moral growth.
At Innovation Montessori we are proud to be able to offer every student a quality, freshly prepared lunch each and every day. For the 2023-24 School Year, we have partnered with The Floribbean Grill - an Ocoee local catering company to offer a variety of classic dishes as well as some Latin and Soul Fusion inspired favorites. From herb roasted chicken drumsticks, penne bolognese and Caribbean BBQ beef bites - our students love the variety of unique daily offerings.
For convenience, lunch can be ordered directly through the student's SchoolPay account and orders must be received by Monday at midnight for the following week.
