Little Chefs

Every Thursday (for 2-4 years old with an adult partner) at 9:15, 11:15 a.m., and 1:15 p.m.

Little Chefs provides healthy and easy hands-on cooking experiences. Toddlers will have fun spreading, mixing, and stirring ingredients which will help them understand and apply knowledge of measuring, counting, and following directions. Inspire your toddler to be a healthy, curious, and self-confident Little Chef. Little Chefs takes place in the Discovery Lab.
