  • Enrichments

    Weekly Cooking Cart Enrichment

    One of the many enrichments that is included in our tuition is a weekly Cooking enrichment. We have put together a fully loaded "Cooking Cart" that is stocked with supplies and ingredients for the teachers to roll into the classroom once a week to complete their cooking projects. Aside from the obvious benefit, taste tasting, cooking incorporates many different learning areas:
    Math - Students become familiar with measuring and different units of measurement
    Science - Exploring how physical properties can change.
    Cause and Effect - Using objects as tools to complete a task.
    Nutrition - Identifying and understanding healthy food choices, making healthy food choices, and understanding characteristics and benefits of nutritious foods.
    Social Skills - Asking questions, using expressive language, taking turns and following directions.
