Sticky Fingers Club: (2-3 years)
Here we focus on fine motor skill development on a every level. Children work alongside their Moms or caregivers experimenting with new tastes and textures. By the age of 2, children develop a strong opinion about what they do and don’t like. Mothers’ often become frustrated as their ‘super non-funny baby’ suddenly develops a strong sense of will and decides he no longer enjoys the foods he used to love. It can be soul destroying! Our aim is to combat and get them back on the right track.
The class is very much focused on fine motor skill development and tactile defensiveness. Children are encouraged to enjoy messy play time in a fun and relaxed environment and it is of the utmost importance that children are not restricted in this class. This is the only way they learn not to become fussy eaters through repetition and experimentation. Children are encouraged to touch, taste and feel new shapes and textures.
Little Chefs Programme: (3–7 years)
A slightly more advanced class than sticky fingers. Children will learn about new shapes, the feeling of different textures, colours & tastes through our fun baking workshops. They will feel a big sense of achievement when the see their very own creations! They will even be able to decorate and personalise their own take home boxes. Again, focus on a theme such as a holiday or season, make it fun by having a dress up for a special themed class and remember to take lots of pictures. Children of this age can start to learn how to follow a set of instructions read from our chalk/white board and be able to measure out ingredients using tsp/ cups etc. We introduce slightly more complex recipes, with more ingredients and steps. Class time 60mins.
Master Class Programme: (+8 years)
This programme is designed for 8 year old plus who will learn how to cook simple but nutritious meals all by themselves! They will follow their own recipes which are more complex and graduate to the weighing scales for measuring., Children work in teams of two or three to create a dish of their own. Children enjoy making recipes such as omelettes, pancakes, tortillas/quesidallas, savory crepes, stir fries, fish cakes and potato cakes! Children enjoy decorating their very own chef’s hat and receiving their own recipe books. Please note that Moms do not need to accompany their children for this programme. Class time 80mins. Each of our classes has a special ingredient of the day, where children learn about a new ingredient each week, where it comes from, nutritional values and experiencing examples.
