Cooking Caterpillars lessons for 5 to 11 years

Cooking Caterpillars is a weekly cooking class for primary school age children who want to get creative in the kitchen.  Each week we focus on a different recipe, exploring the world of healthy eating and trying lots of new global flavours and tastes.

We keep our Cooking Caterpillars classes small to ensure each child has enough work space and teacher guidance  to learn in a relaxed way and gain confidence in the kitchen.  Each class lasts for 1 hour 15 mins, which gives your child sufficient time to prep and cook their dishes as well as participate in some fun activity while they wait for their dish to cook.

For each Cooking Caterpillars class we provide each of our little cooks with all the things they will need to make their recipe dishes, including aprons, ingredients and cooking equipment along with the packaging to take their creation home in. We also provide a relaxed and fun environment for your child to learn in with gentle encouragement along the way so they get the most from their cooking lessons.
