cook-to-learn-horiztonal

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.

COOK TO LEARN REFLECTIONS FROM FACILITATORS

Child Care Resources (CCR) is a large agency that supports not only family/center child care providers, but also family, friends, and neighbors/homeless families, etc. Creatively teaching families to teach children using everyday experiences is essential.

The mission of my organization is to provide an educational foundation that will give our children the knowledge they need as they develop and move into primary school, and I think that Cook to Learn supports that mission.

We want to build family relationships. Cooking together does that! It also builds capacity for healthy choices.
