At Sherwood Green Nursery, we offer Cookery Classes every Friday to children in our pre-school and toddler room
These classes are an important part of a child’s development. It teaches them the importance of healthy eating, and nutritious, balanced diets as part of a healthy lifestyle. Teaching children these key life skills at this early stage in their lives can create a solid, healthy foundation for their development and future.
There are many benefits of children taking part in cookery classes. It allows them to engage and explore with a range of different textures, colours, smells and allows them to broaden their horizons and discover new and interesting flavours. Cooking can also help to provide many practical essential skills.
These can include:
- Reading skills by following instructions
- Following directions
- Measuring and number skills
- Hand-eye coordination/fine motor skills with sprinkling, stirring, and spreading
- Early concepts of Maths and Science
