A Typical Day

Parkside Preschool cooking classes have two aims:
1) Good Nutirtion
The cooking classes are intended to help children learn some basic concepts of good nutrition and to help children enjoy preparing nutritious food.
2) Skills
The second aim of the cooking classes is to help young children develope â??readiness skillsâ??, such as vocabulary and language development, understanding of numbers and letters, and small muscle coordination.
It is encouraging to see the children grow in self-confidence as learn to do this grown-up thing, cooking!
