Art

Young children learn and explore through their senses, and the experience and process is always the most exciting part of any art activity. In art children can learn and explore through exciting and messy open-ended art materials. Little ones learn about colors, textures, and shapes while developing fine motor skills and expressing their creativity through unconventional and open-ended materials.

Cooking

Food is a natural community builder, and the preparation involved lends itself to an amazing opportunity for relationship building among family and friends. Cooking is a sensory activity filled with mixing, pouring, measuring, and stirring--all natural activities that small children enjoy and learn while doing. Not only is cooking fun and a rich educational opportunity, but children gain confidence and take pride when they can then enjoy their own culinary creations at the end.

Classes include:

  • Kookin Kids (2-4 years):  Children have fun as they peel, whisk, and stir their way through a variety of fresh ingredients, techniques, and vocabulary. They'll learn healthy eating habits, identify and reinforce speech, colors, shapes, smells, and motor skills in a nurturing and delicious environment.

  • Cook for Shabbat (6 years and under):  Make Shabbat your favorite day of the week. Learn about the history and traditions of Jewish foods as you and your child measure, mix, pour, and taste your way to a delectable Shabbat meal.
