Lunch Bunch is a special after school program offered to our Mount Olive Preschool students, Monday through Thursday, from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm. After three hours of exercising their minds we invite children to come and exercise their bodies in an atmosphere of fun, food, and friends. Lunch Bunch is more than a long recess; it is leisure time for enjoying the great outdoors, exploring the fine art of peer socialization and friendship, and extended quality time with Lunch Bunch teachers who facilitate their experience. Every month our activities include:
Activities, games and equipment that will incorporate gross motor skills with non-competitive cooperation.
Music, Music, Music! We will be listening to an awesome array of old and new songs and tunes. We have a kaleidoscope of music; everything from Burl Ives folk songs to 50’s blast from the past dance tunes. The children will switch from beautiful oldies to foot stomping dance tunes.
“Otter Pops! We do Otter Pops every day.
Lunch Bunch is available to children in our three, four, and five year old classrooms from the first day of school through the first week of June. Lunch Bunch is not available for children enrolled in our Two Year Old or SonRise Kids programs. Initial reservations for Lunch Bunch take place the last Monday and Tuesday of every month. During this initial reservation period you may sign-up for ONE DAY per week due to the popularity of the program and the large number of students eligible. On the following Monday and Tuesday you may sign-up for an additional day per week if there is space available. Our goal is for every student to have an opportunity to enjoy this popular program at least one day per week.
Children go directly from class to playground.
You must have a reservation before you send your child to Lunch Bunch.
Tickets are purchased in the office in advance. The cost is $10.00 per ticket, buy 5…get one FREE!!
If your child is absent on a day you have a reservation, please notify the office prior to 9:00 a.m. that day and we will cross them off. This gives an opportunity for another child to attend.

You must sign your child out before picking them up from the playground on their teacher’s “sign-out sheet” outside their respective classrooms.
Please pick up your child at 1:30 p.m. outside the playground gate. Due to insurance liability and your child’s safety we will dismiss them one at a time to parents or authorized persons.
