Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds - Bush Kidz Child Care Centre Brassall Program

This exciting kitchen-based program is a part of our weekly schedule where the children undertake cooking experiences within their classrooms.

Through our cooking activities for children, the children learn all about different cuisines from around the world, while also learning different cooking methods and skills.

When children are involved in cooking, they are engaging a whole lot of new skills, such as reading and developing their fine motor skills. Cooking goes beyond just making food as well. When children are cooking, it’s the beginnings of skills like maths and science, as children measure ingredients and combine items to create something new.

Developing a positive relationship with food is so important. At Bush kidz Brassall, we love seeing children getting into the kitchen and making their own lunches and snacks.

The Value of Garden Activities for Children

Gardening teaches children so many new responsibilities – from taking care of a living thing through to seeing how a life cycle works.

Our rich garden beds are full of good fertile compost from our worm farms, while the plants and vegetables that we grow form part of the nutritious lunches that children eat every day. We love seeing our children at Bush kidz Brassall taking pride in seeing their gardens take shape. The children visit the gardens daily, allowing them to be completely involved in the entire process, from planting new crops right through to fertilising, watering and harvesting time.
