Kids in the Kitchen these School Holidays

Calling all budding chefs, it’s time to cook up a storm at TAFE SA!

The July school holidays are fast approaching and TAFE SA has some action packed classes for kiddos from 4-16.

Children learn by touching, tasting, feeling, smelling and listening. The kitchen is like a sensory wonderland where they can use all of these senses at once! TAFE SA’s Kids Kitchen program aims to facilitate this practical learning, which will also help to develop fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination and even math and science skills.

Whether your child is a Kinder Cook, Growing Gourmet Chef, or the next Master Class Professional – Kids Kitchen has a diverse range of classes for anyone and everyone! The program has been especially designed so that young people can pick and choose to suit their interests and capabilities.

All classes are taught by professional chefs in the world-class TAFE SA Regency campus. Students will use a range of ingredients, which will teach them where their food comes from and build a positive connection to all different types of food including fresh fruit and vegetables. Forming a positive experience with fresh foods is crucial to building the foundation to good nutrition.

Bigger kids, 7 and up, will get the opportunity to learn with the lecturer and without the help of parents. This is an exciting opportunity to gain some confidence in the kitchen!

Whatever age, your kids will be so proud when they can bring the recipe home and cook it again for you. Kids Kitchen will teach your little ones skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
