This class will strive to teach a love of the process of cooking. Children will participate in every aspect of creating an edible recipe during each class. Children will measure, count, pour, mix, identify ingredients, and discuss the final product. This class will employ the Montessori techniques of a truly sensorial experience. Students will be introduced to new foods, will learn ingredient names, and will work with a variety of kitchen implements. Some heat cooking will be used, but many recipes will focus on the preparation and will not require heat. This class will be an excellent hands-on experience and will promote self-confidence. Children will be able to eat or bring home their prepared food at the end of each class. Please send in a container with your child each week for leftovers.

Return the application by August 27th along with September’s payment. Six students are needed for the class to occur.

Parents are responsible for letting Ms. Crystal know if their child will be discontinuing classes.

Children must be 3 1/2 and potty trained to attend studio.


*If your child has food allergies and they are severe or numerous please speak to Ms. Crystal before registering your child in cooking class. Please remember that we are cooking each week with a number of children and it may not be possible to accommodate all allergies or food considerations. Please speak to Ms. Crystal with any questions that you might have.

Please be advised that you will be charged the $5.00 to MMS per hour for After School Program charges in addition to the studio price.
