Every month we invite a small number of parent volunteers to join us as we cook in the kitchen. Recipes are simple and include items like baked breads, homemade jams, dumplings, pizzas, sushi rolls etc. The cooking class is a wonderful opportunity for families of various backgrounds to share recipes that are culturally significant during different parts of the year. It is also a great opportunity for children to sensorially explore the tastes, smells and textures of the world around them and to receive simple mathematics and language lessons in the process.
Share with Us
Parents are welcome to arrange a time to come into the classroom and share a special skill or knowledge with the children. For example, you may wish to come and teach a Yoga lesson or teach us about the solar system. Parents are also welcome to host a circle time if they would like to read a special story or share something that is culturally significant to their family (i.e. Diwali, Hanukah, Christmas, Buddha's Birthday etc.) Throughout the year we have many opportunities for you to join and share with our tiny classroom community.
