Child care experts agree that children appreciate a wider variety of food when they participate in preparation. Here are just a few of the reasons why cooking is part of our curriculum.
 
       
  Cooking  
       
  Encourages creativity, by allowing children to make decisions and to create new recipes.  
 
Teaches how things change, through various processes in the kitchen e.g. by heating, freezing, grinding , and beating – food is made ready to eat, through the simple mixing of ingredients or watching water boil or freeze, for example, children experience different states of matter.
 
 
Builds self-confidence, by encouraging children to take part in and contribute to the adult world, it also provides great satisfaction and develops positive self-esteem.
 
 
Develops children’s fine motor skills by encouraging them to use cooking tools, such as shredders, graters and grinders.
 
 
Teaches about other cultures, as food preparation is universal to all people regardless of the socio-economic level or culture.
 
       
  Note:  
       
 
We invite parents and community volunteers to lead the children in creating food and snacks from other countries and cultures.
