The Toddler Friends continue to be interested in and enjoy cooking experiences.  We have been cooking a different  recipes throughout the year and will be sharing a variety of the  activities and materials that we invite children to investigate.  We incorporate literacy, math, social skills, and science into our cooking explorations.

On January 3, 2018 we read the book Before we Eat from Farm to Table.  Our learning goals are literacy, language and to support the children's understanding of where food comes from. Does your child have a favorite book about food or cooking that you would like to share with us or come in and read to us?
