Cook to Learn is a program designed to increase the math readiness skills of children ages 2-5.
Children and caregivers participate in a Cook to Learn event where they prepare a food item together. The curriculum uses shapes, numbers, size, measurement, and patterns as guiding principles to increase knowledge of child development, while simultaneously helping young learners gain the skills needed to be Kindergarten ready in math.
A Focus On Cooking Has Several Advantages:
- Children can learn math principles through simple, fun, everyday moments.
- Cooking is an everyday exercise that can easily be incorporated into families’ normal routines.
- Cooking can be easily adapted to meet the needs and traditions of any community.
