    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "3-hour cooking classes developed to teach practical life skills and food literacy. Children work independently and learn to cook food from scratch. Each student puts on a chef's coat and will gather their own ingredients from the pantry or living food wall. Instructors guide them through unique cooking techniques and they have a wide range of tools at their own workstation including their own oven, cooktop and KitchenAid mixer. Food is enjoyed together at the ChopValue community table made of recycled chopsticks. All students are also provided a token at the end of class worth $1 that they make choose to donate to one of our three charity partners teaching them Care of Self, Care of Others, Care of Environment."

    The Our Kids review of Little Kitchen Academy

    our take

    Kids who enjoy helping in the kitchen will love the programs at Little Kitchen Academy. More than just basic cooking lessons, kids here learn valuable skills that will take their food from toddler to master chef. Kids work in a clean and equipped industrial kitchen wearing chef’s uniforms, making this much more official and magical. Owners Nicholas and Angela Popoff are enthusiastic about food and how it can change lives. They use empowerment as a tool in the kitchen, encouraging kids to create their own meals with healthy ingredients. Because Little Kitchen Academy is Montessori-based, kids are guided without being told what to do, fostering practical life skills, along with kitchen skills, which gives them confidence and the will to move forward in their lessons. Some kids may come out of their lessons here moving into the food industry, some may just do it for the love of food. Either way, the lessons learned here will always be useful (we all have to eat!).

    Big fan of LKA Beaches

    I’m a big fan of LKA beaches location. My sons (ages 8 and 6 at time of class) loved it. They loved being independent, learning new recipes, and cutting and cooking the ingredients, and most of all trying their creations! There is always enough food so parents get a chance to try as well. The kids are so excited to tell us what they made. Cooking is such an important like skill. With all the craziness with life, I sometimes forget to slow down at dinner time to teach the kids. So this is a great way of getting them interested and to teach them new skills. Price is a bit expensive for a kids’ activity but i understand that ingredients are expensive! This is a great place and we will definitely go again! ... Show More

    I had no idea

    We recently tried out LKA for a pa day camp. I had no idea how my daughter would like it. When I picked her up she was beaming, proud sharing the leftovers, and eager to show me her new skills! She came home with renewed interest and confidence in the kitchen. We can’t wait to sign up for more ... Show More

    Director's Message

    Felicity Curin, Founder, President & COO

    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.

    To families seeking educationally-enriching activities for their children ages 3-18, Little Kitchen Academy is the leading Montessori-inspired cooking academy providing a safe and empowering environment to learn practical life skills, confidence, independence, and healthy eating habits to last a lifetime.
