We couldn't agree more with Albert Einstein as we also believe that play is essential for maximum learning to take place. Children learn the most when they are interested and having fun, and our job is to embrace those moments.
Cooking is a great and most importantly fun way of engaging children in teamwork, practicing their math & measurement skills, and at the same time give them a chance to explore new foods and learn about healthy food habits. At Art Village Nursery we have cooking sessions once a week with the children. They get to make everything from scones to healthy yogurt ice-cream. As we pour, stir and mix the different ingredients, we explore their texture and taste as well talk as about each step of the process. The children get a chance to count, develop their understanding for measurement as well their interest for different foods.
