The kitchen is under construction!! We are currently not scheduling classes or parties as we make way for an updated kitchen for classes! We will resume classes in fall 2016.

About Creative Kids Kitchen, LLC

From the time he was big enough to sit in his Bumbo chair on the counter, my son Miles has helped me in the kitchen. Sometimes, cooking together was the only thing that got us through long, fussy winter afternoons before Dad got home. 

As a full-time mom of a toddler and a baby, I was forever looking for new activities that are educational and fun. As I searched for a place where Miles and I could share our joy of cooking with other moms and kids, I discovered that Northern Virginia lacks cooking classes for toddlers and preschoolers. Shortly thereafter, I began offering weekly sessions out of my North Arlington home.

Why Cooking Classes?

My primary objective is to provide a fun and healthy activity for kids and their caregivers to look forward to each week. Everyone likes to get out of the house and meet new friends! Think of all the ways that young children can benefit from learning to cook: It is tremendously appealing to their tactile senses--pouring, stirring, touching the dough...and teaches cooperation and a sense of pride in their creations.

Beyond what the classes bring to them now, I hope to help these kids to develop a life-long appreciation for nutritious food and good eating habits.

2015 Announcement!

To my beloved students, their families, and especially my summer campers--we are expecting a new arrival to our family! Miles and Maggie will be joined by a baby sister in June, 2015. As such, I will not be holding summer camps this year, and will not be booking new parties or classes past March 31. Thank you for understanding! I plan to start classes again in late fall, 2015.
