Cooking with Kids at KinderCare


KinderCare is much more than a preschool but a place where children’s minds are enriched through various programs like cooking classes. The cooking adventure classes at KinderCare are part of their Learning Adventures™ Enrichment Program where children learn how to read a recipe, cook and the history behind the food they are preparing. Earlier this month, I went to observe one of the cooking classes with my daughter, and she couldn’t resist joining in on the fun.




The teacher started the class by talking to the kids about the food they were going to prepare. Since they were going to make “sushi sandwiches” she talked to the kids about sushi, where it came from and showed pictures of sushi. The kids were all participating in the class by talking about how their parents eat sushi, their favorite restaurants and their different thoughts on the popular dish.




Then it was time for the fun to begin! The teacher demonstrated how to make the sushi sandwich and then walked the kids through the entire process of making it. The class was small enough for the teacher to take her time giving all of the kids one-on-one attention to ensure that they were all successful with the cooking project. As a former preschool teacher, I was thoroughly impressed with the patience and care that the cooking teacher had with all the children in the class.




Once the kids were done making their sushi sandwiches, they all giggle and munched on their creative food creations. All of the children were provided with a copy of the recipe to bring home and make for their parents.





We visited the KinderCare location in Las Flores that is clean, beautiful and has a true sense of family amongst the teachers and the students. It is nestled up against a hill that offers children a soothing surrounding environment to learn, play and grow.


The cooking adventure classes are open to the public, and right now KinderCare is offering a complimentary class to OC Mom Blog readers. You’re invited to attend one of the classes and find out if the program is a good fit for you child. The classes are 20-60 minutes and are taught year round in 4-6 week cycles. The cooking adventure class is available at all KinderCare locations, and the class we took was at the Las Flores location at 28672 Deerpath.
