At Maharishi School Children’s House, high standards are maintained for each child’s happiness, comfort, ability to cooperate in a group, and academic experience. The Children’s House experience should be easy and nourishing for the child and the School reserves the right to decide that a child is not ready for the program. In this case, the Preschool Director will discuss the situation with the parents, and a pro-rated refund will be given.

Children have the option to bring a lunch from home or join our “Family Style” hot lunch. This food is all organic and vegetarian, from the university dining hall, and costs $3/meal. We are partnered with CACFP (Child and Adult Food Care Program) to provide free or reduced lunch with eligible children. Our children eat with five lunch supervisors, who have all completed training with CACFP to provide excellent care and nutritious, balanced meals during lunch.
