Little Kitchen Academy Launches Exclusive Program for Seniors Across Participating Schools Throughout the US and Canada

Los Angeles, CA– January 31,  Little Kitchen Academy (LKA) the leading Montessori-inspired cooking academy for kids ages 3 through 18, today launches cooking classes for seniors ages 65+.   LKA will begin offering 2.5-hour classes to seniors as a new step in its mission to promote a more educated, independent, and healthier society and to inspire healthy eating habits that truly last a lifetime.  

Classes feature simple unique recipes that range from nostalgic favorites seniors will find familiar to on-trend TikTok-inspired new creations that will allow senior students to surprise their families and friends when they share their experiences after class.

“When we were approached about providing classes to seniors, we knew it would be a perfect fit with our company vision.  We continue to maintain LKA as a place for enrichment and empowerment and we knew that senior classes would allow us to stay true to our mission while helping improve more lives,” said Little Kitchen Academy Founder, Felicity Curin.

Anyone over 65 years old can join LKA’s senior classes by enrolling online at participating locations.  LKA also offers group programs for all senior care communities, including independent, retirement, assisted and memory care allowing residents to feel like themselves, contribute to their families and society, maintain a sense of purpose, boost mental health, provide a sense of control, sharpen cognitive skills and tone muscles, all while having fun.

“Our OPAL Senior Living residents loved their experience at LKA’s Senior Cooking Classes.  The instructors were so caring, and their kitchen environment was impressive.  Seniors really enjoyed socializing with instructors around the community table at the end of the class. I highly recommend LKA for senior communities and residents,” said Ernie Hee, EVP, Element Lifestyle Retirement.

Class schedules vary based on the community needs near each LKA school, but classes will typically be available at convenient times during the day on weekdays. Seniors who are interested in learning more can sign up for the newsletter on the company website.

“We are so proud to be able to provide opportunities for empowerment to the seniors in our communities.  It has been inspiring to see the joy and laughter in these senior classes especially as the group gathers around and enjoys their finished meal together,” said Brian Curin, CEO & Co-Founder of Little Kitchen Academy.

New senior classes will be added on an ongoing basis and more information is available at
