Cooking in our outdoor kitchen
We have successfully been running our cooking program since our outdoor kitchen was built in 2014.
Cooking with preschoolers is not only a great time to spend together, it's also a rich educational experience. There are many maths concepts associated with cooking - measurement, weight, size, counting, temperature, estimating and sequencing.
Cooking experiences can help children become effective communicators, expand their vocabulary, encourage verbal conversation, asking and answering questions and beginning reading skills to follow a recipe.
Cooking is also fantastic for fine motor skills allowing the children to experiment and practice their fine motor skills and strength.
