    I find that mine are still hungry for lunch at 11:45 even though I have moved snacktime to around 10 so that the mornign nappers are up and I only have to serve one snack. Maybe you could serve a smaller snack...just some fruit or something small, so that they don't fill up before lunch.

    What works with the later snack is to serve the fruit and then at lunch not serve one so it reduces the amount of food being served then. It is like having one huge meal in sections of the morning.

A few tips...

If you visited or if you're using a childcare provider found on DaycareBear, do not hesitate to leave a review. This will most certainly help other parents!
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
