A Fueling Station for the Mind
The S.M.A.R.T. theme comes alive in the Café décor, where food becomes an opportunity for young children to learn about and experience Science, Math, Art, Reading and Technology.

The Café environment reinforces its “healthy lifestyles” theme with food packaging, signage and a menu design that allows young children to choose a balanced lunch for themselves by using pictures if they can’t yet read.
