Calendar items inform parents about upcoming events, food menus, or lessons.
Creating a lesson allows you to indicate and describe the different lessons taught to children on specific dates.
Creating a menu allows you to specify the different meal types (solid food) and what time they are served to children. Creating an activity enables the addition of various activities to the calendar.
