Ecofriendly Organic CMP

Organic Food

Carmel Mountain Preschool prides itself on serving organic fruits and vegetables so our children are getting the vitamins and nutrients they need to grow. We are very vigilant about children’s allergies and respecting parents’ choices as to what is served to their children. We also have the ability to provide our students with fresh organic eggs from our very own Chicken Coop and we utilize the fruits, vegetables and herbs grown organically on our grounds whenever we can.

We provide organic ingredients for the classroom cooking projects throughout the year and all food served at our Family events is organic. Preschoolers do better with organic whole foods and plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Filtered Water Stations

At Carmel Mountain Preschool we pride ourselves on creating the healthiest environment for our students. We also are looking out for our preschool student’s future by making choices that are best for the environment. All CMP students bring reusable water bottles to preschool and there is a filtered water bottle filter on both floors of our preschool. These water bottle filters are awesome for preschool students because it encourages preschoolers to drink more water so they can “refill” their bottle on the “magic water” machines. It also is providing our preschool students with safer purified water. Please feel free to bring in your own water bottle to fill up at one of our Filtered Water Bottle Stations.

Did you know that a child’s biggest organ is their skin? It is just as important as what we put on a child’s body as what they put in their body. The majority of preschools use the soap that is the cheapest but at Carmel Mountain Preschool we did lots of research and chose the soap that is safest for our children. Dr. Bronner’s Organic Castille Soap is the only soap that is so natural it is allowed at our National Parks. It’s also the only soap allowed at Carmel Mountain Preschool. Preschoolers wash their hands a lot as it is the number one way to kill germs and stay healthy. We want to make sure that our Carmel Mountain Preschool students are using a soap that cleans their hands and gets rid of germs but does not damage their bodies. It’s an expensive choice but it’s the best choice.

Carmel Mountain Preschool is outfitted with solar panels and special environmentally conscious lighting. We do our part for the environment.

Here at Carmel Mountain Preschool we do our best to be environmentally conscious and to reuse, reduce and recycle. We have recycling bins in each classroom and we teach our preschool students about the importance of recycling as much as possible. We hope what the children learn at preschool about the benefits recycling will carry over to home.
