    Little Kitchen Academy

     

    Join us in ‘changing lives from scratch’ in your community—with your own little kitchen academy

     

    Little Kitchen Academy empowers children with practical life skills and teaches the joy of making healthy food choices in an inclusive and modern kitchen environment, complete with 10 individual cooking stations (aka Little Kitchens), each with its own oven, cooktop, sink, prep table, Kitchen Aid mixer, and all the equipment and utensils needed to make “from scratch” creations. Sessions run year-round and focus on seasonal, locally grown and organic produce and ingredients. Classes run three hours each and are taught by age group by 3 instructors, who can host up to 10 students per class. The learning begins as soon as students enter the “for student chefs only” environment. Each student dons a chef coat and a fitted pair of BIRKENSTOCK kitchen shoes to begin their personalized cooking journey, which includes experimenting with math and science concepts; testing one’s reading skills; learning social etiquette and table manners while enjoying a meal together; learning sustainable decision making as students learn about local, in-season, and organic produce; and sharing the fruits of their labor by dining together at the end of every lesson at the community table. For older students, Little Kitchen Academy offers LKA Late Nights on the weekend customized for teens.

    You and little kitchen–a recipe for success

     

    Great brands are like great meals. If you have the right people at the table, it makes for an extraordinary experience. We believe that selecting the right people to join us on our journey is much like selecting the best ingredients for the perfect recipe. Our ingredients for like-minded partners start with our purpose, mixed in with our core values, and finish with kindness, a passion for teaching, a passion for learning, a positive outlook on life, a desire to see our youth flourish into responsible, independent, empowered individuals, and a yearning to leave the world a better place.

    At Little Kitchen Academy, children are exposed to math while using units of measure, or producing yield when chopping 1 red pepper into 15 pieces.  They work with basic science experiments when watching what happens to matter when heat is added, or observing the change in flour and water when yeast starts to develop.  Reading recipes together strengthens their (pre)reading skills. Caring for plants, understanding the nutrients they contain, and what they do to your body is the best way to understand the beginnings of biology.  At LKA our students learn the basic (and often challenging) fundamentals of primary education in the kitchen. They learn basic life skills. And best of all, they have lots of fun.
