A Healthy Place to Learn

Seagull Schools was selected as one of 18 programs honored in 2012 by Michelle Obama's "Let's Move Child Care State Challenge" - of more than 6,000 applicants nationally! This validates our decisions to have ample green outdoor play space, a strict no candy or sweets policy, no video screens in classrooms and a menu of healthy foods prepared daily that includes a vegetarian meal once a week. In addition, none of our classrooms require air conditioning because they are designed to be naturally cooled environments. For the past 15 years, Seagull Schools has also been a leader in developing intergenerational programs that mutually benefit children and older adults. All of our facilities include volunteer and paid positions for seniors where they and the children get the chance to enjoy each other's company, learn together, laugh together, grow together emotionally, and realize each other's full worth.
