A magical place where every child has his or her own unique food allergy!

[quote]The school makes a "stop sign" for each kid, with a list of the restrictions on it, and those are on the food cart so teachers won't serve the wrong thing to a kid. They're also a nut-free facility. [quote]We accomodate all diets, allergies, and food sensitivities at Montessori Children's House. In the Primary class we are currently dairy, gluten, peanut, egg, and sesame-seed free. It gives us (and the children) the opportunity to prepare and taste new things! My child does not have an allergy, but he is nevertheless a special tender blossom! [quote]My child does not have a life-threatening food allergy (thankfully!), but he does have a great number of severe food intolerances that affect his behavior and his ability to function socially with others. His preschool is great -- kids all bring their own snacks and kids are not allowed to share food. They tell us ahead of time if any group food will be served. And they keep a special stash of treats for him (which we provided) just in case a parent drops by with a surprise treat for the other kids due to a birthday or other celebration. [quote]My child should not have to miss out on vital childhood experiences because of his allergy, and his life shouldn't need to be at risk because someone had to have granola with cashews at lunch. People who feel otherwise need to gain some perspective. It's also an honor to have one of these children in your midst: [quote]Nowhere, in any of the articles I have read, has anyone talked about the fact that the disabled child has given all of her classmates an opportunity to act out of their highest ethical selves.
