We are pleased to announce our unique program that incorporates World Cuisine into our Early Education Programs. Food is the thread that ties all humans together regardless of country or culture. Food, therefore, is something we all have in common and there is so much that can be learned from the discussion of it. Each countries' language, music, and culture are explored throughout the month. Every month a child is chosen and asked to select a country whose food we will prepare for the school on World Cuisine Wednesdays during that month. That child is also designated as our prestigious Food Ambassador and is honored with the Official Chef's Hat for the month as well!
