Little Kitchen Academy Timeline.

core valuesOur core values are Health, Empowerment, Joy, Mindfulness, Learning, Delight, and Inspiration.

At Little Kitchen Academy, we are committed to providing a safe, inspiring, and empowering environment for our students, instructors, and parents/legal guardians. Our core values guide our behaviour to create a more educated, capable, and healthy society.

Aligned with our core values is our Code of Conduct, which is an integral part of involvement with Little Kitchen Academy and requires all students, instructors, and parents/legal guardians to follow and uphold these Montessori Principles:

Care of self

Care of others

Care of environment

why Montessori Montessori education values the development of the whole child – physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.

With the utmost respect to Dr. Maria Montessori and the Montessori Method, we celebrate many of her discoveries, theories and scientifically designed work. One of the most important tenets, Follow The Child, is at the core of our curriculum. Every LKA student is thoughtfully observed, and we provide challenging work with attainable goals. Our loving instructors step in only when needed because we know that our students are capable of so much! Allowing our students to take risks and work at their own pace grows confidence and independence both in and out of the kitchen.

welcome to our kitchen Teaching practical life skills and food literacy through cooking.

One of my favourite things to do when our children have friends over is to cook or bake together. I find willing helpers at all ages. They love to get involved and offer suggestions or opinions. I am always surprised at the varying degrees of confidence in the kitchen. The only constant is enthusiasm. While making recipes we expose children to food literacy and teach them practical life skills. While making recipes we expose children to basic fundamentals of math. They learn patterns, yields, time management, fractions. They work with science. Adding or subtracting heat from matter, watching yeast bloom, adding different elements to form reactions.

Joy, feeling one’s own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul.
