YOUNG CHEFS COOKING CLASS (Ages: 5-12) Young Chefs cooking classes encourage discovery, creativity and trying new foods. While learning food preparation skills is the main focus, each class also incorporates kitchen safety, cooking terms and language, etiquette, table setting, menu planning, and fun food related games or crafts.
The school year is divided into three semesters and you pre-pay for part of the current semester. Decide which day/time you can consistently come to and then attend as many class periods as you can, we will keep track of attendance. If all classes are attended the extra tuition is due at the end of the semester. One missed class does not need to be “made-up,” as this is a flexible attendance plan. Unused tuition/classes cannot be carried over to a new semester, refunded or credited. Enrollment mid-semester is acceptable upon availability. Once camp/class/workshop registration has been completed it is final (after all, registration is how we make hiring, scheduling and supply order decisions). If a student is unable to attend an event the tuition may be transferable to another student or camp subject to availability. We reserve the right to combine classes/camps/workshops due to low enrollment or subject compatibility. A variety of media will be used in art classes and is included in tuition: oil and chalk pastel, charcoal, watercolor, design marker, graphite, colored pencil, wax pastel, collage and sculpture materials. Every effort is made to keep students clean, but accidents happen so please dress for a mess.
