Generation Next is a peanut and peanut oil free center; therefore, absolutely NO food or drink may be brought into the center.

This policy includes breakfast. Children need to eat breakfast at home or, for your convenience, we have safe breakfast items on the breakfast cart that may be purchased for $0.50 per item. These items may be paid in cash or charged to your account. It is not acceptable to bring an item that may be similar to our items. We thoroughly check labels to ensure safe manufacturing and ingredients.

Children who are severally allergic to peanuts attend all three locations. Please help us keep these children safe.

Thank you in advance for your immediate attention to this very sensitive issue.
