What you and your child can expect:
The class will start with a brief introduction of the instructor and what the recipe will be, followed by an overview of what steps they will be taking to complete the recipe (there is always a fun fact included related to the theme of the recipe 👀).
Your Tiny Chefs instructor will then take a couple of minutes to wash their hands and get their aprons on! The instructor will make sure that everyone has enough time to complete each step before moving on to the next. Tiny Chefs are encouraged to ask questions during class. After we are done cooking everyone has a chance to taste their creation and discuss what they like or dislike about it, or to show off their creation!
