Children at this age are curious and eager to get into the action, making this an ideal age to get kids involved in the kitchen. Although we consider these classes to be “parent-assisted”, we ask parents for minimal assistance, if any, instead encouraging even the youngest kids to take initiative as we introduce concepts like kitchen safety, basic measurement and teamwork. We also stress academic skills of counting, color, shapes and following directions. Specifically, we aim to teach important cooking skills such as mixing, pouring, wrapping, shaking, spreading, peeling, rolling and mashing, although measuring, cutting,
grinding and grating can all be part of the curriculum.
