It’s been crazy around here ever since that mischievous monkey, Curious George, got into our kitchen and hid all the bananas! Now allthe animals want attention and we’d better give it to them or we’ll have a stampede on our hands!

We’re calling all budding chefs (ages 5-8) (and their adult cooking partners) to join us in our kitchen for a fun day to play with “animals” as we make Sugar Cookie Dough.

We want to help your young chef start on the road to learning important kitchen and life skills. They’ll learn to follow instructions as they roll the dough, ice the cookies, and make a palm tree out of a pretzel and some edible leaves (really!). We’ll bake them and then decorate them with colorful icing and lots of sprinkles and candies.

It’s not all about sweet treats today though… we’ll learn to make Cheesy Animal Snacks out of ham and, you guessed it… cheese!

What a great way to spend time with your child, grandchild, niece or nephew– in our kitchen, cooking together and creating wonderful memories. They’ll also learn how rewarding it is to eat something they’ve made with their own two hands!

We keep it simple, engaging and interactive so nobody nods off or gets bored. It’s a great opportunity to introduce your tiny chef to the pleasures of the kitchen, in a way that they can understand.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CLASS: 
We Require A Waiver Signed By Parent/Legal Guardian:  Prior to admittance to this class, we require a waiver to be signed by a parent or legal guardian.   This waiver requests a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary and names of any additional people who are authorized to pick up the child after class.  We encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver, sign it and either 1) scan and email it to lori@kcculinary.com or 2) bring/send it to class with your student.  Without an appropriately signed Waiver your child will not be allowed to attend class.  We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule.  If someone other than the parent drops off your child, they will need evidence that they have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time.  [Click here to download the Waiver]

What To Wear To Class:  For safety reasons, we also recommend that students wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.

If Your Child Plans To Attend Class With Someone Else, please add their name(s) to the ‘Comments’ section of your online registration so that we can seat you together; otherwise we cannot ensure that you will be seated together for the class. If you register for multiple students at one time, that registration will prompt you to supply the names of all students you are registering and we will know to seat you together. 

Only Registered Students Will Be Allowed In The Classroom During Class:  This is so your child will have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention.  Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class.

Important Information Regarding Children With Special Needs:  Our cooking instructors are skilled in teaching culinary education at an age appropriate level.  Several of our instructors even have early childhood and teaching background and certification.  However, we are not equipped to work with, nor are these classes designed for, children who may have special needs, issues with focus, or difficulty with sitting still to listen and concentrate on the instructor or issues with relating to other students in a classroom setting.  When we encounter a student who requires significant special attention, the experience for the other students suffers.  While our class and cooking camps are well staffed, we just don’t have the staff to be able to allocate someone to work directly with your child for the entire class.  Should we identify a situation where we believe a student falls within one or more of these categories, we will be contacting you to pick up your students.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund for all or any part of the class or camp fees.   Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions or concerns that you feel should be discussed in advance of your child’s class.  Please be aware of our 5-day cancellation policy.
