Kidchen Club 是個能讓你與孩子一起「生活、料理、玩創意」的新型態五感學習園地，全程雙語教學！別以為 Kidchen Club 只是一間「親子料理教室」，我們將烹飪視為生命及生活的啟蒙，相信孩子最需要的不只是書本知識，而是生活智慧。
Kidchen Club 認為，料理是唯一能讓孩子同時運用五感的活動；料理更能幫助孩子管理情緒與發展社交關係，並從中獲得莫大的成就感──那就是Kidchen Club要送給孩子們的禮物──他們帶回家的可不只是「食譜」與「菜餚」，而是「生活」、「料理」還有「創意」。
「生活 料理 玩創意」藉著多元的烹調課程，將書本上的抽象事物（例如語言、數學、科學…）轉變成手作的體驗，提升孩子感官、認知、人際、觀察及思考技能，同時也意識到「食的健康」，讓他們開始擁有身心靈富足的快樂人生。
Through our culinary-led, multi-disciplinary integrated curriculum, children are served with a 'Recipe for Life' in a learningful play way at Kidchen Club.
To grow up having a happy, healthy and well-balanced life, our children need a recipe to help prepare them to be life smart, not just book smart.
Kidchen Club believes in the power of food as a learning tool. So we use food and cooking as a launching point to introduce multi-disciplinary subjects, math, science, language, culture and essential life skills to children, which allows them to engage in a fun, hands-on and multi-sensory learning experience.
Cooking is the only activity that allows children to use their 5 senses. Cooking also helps with a child's emotional and social development. In fact, food creates a great bond between parents and a child from the first meal on! This is the reason why when a child leaves Kidchen Club, what he or she brings home is not just a recipe and the food they made that day, but with a recipe for life.
看看Pretzel的樣子，外面那三條彎彎的手臂，就像是Kidchen Club的三種參與角色──他們分別代表了老師（teachers）、爸媽（parents）跟最寶貝的孩子而這三股親密環抱的溫柔力量，共同圍繞出了三個可愛的「圈圈」，那正是小朋友最核心的三項發展能力──思考（腦）、感覺（心）和動作（手）。最後，我們可以看到Pretzel的「蝴蝶結」有兩個特別的端點，那是Kidchen Club的兩樣獨門武器──一支「攪拌器」和一支「鉛筆」
最後，只要將這個Kidchen Club Pretzel送進烤箱，一起享受這獨特的體驗，一道完美整合烹飪、遊戲與學習三大要素的「“寓教於味”快樂學習法」就香噴噴地大廚房裡的PRETZEL規則
Tasty & Learningful Play Model "Pretzel It!"
Pretzel represents the three most important stakeholders in our learningful play model—children, parents, and Kidchen Club.The three parties work with one another to form loops around the three core elements of a child’s Heart, Head and Hands.To represent the techniques that Kidchen Club uses to deliver its program, a whisk and a pencil are placed at the end of the Kidchen Club Pretzel. Kidchen Club’s food-led curriculum is thus developed through a careful integration of culinary, play and learning.
• The whisk represents a creative learning through culinary and play.
• The pencil represents the academics and procedures sides of multi-disciplinary learning subjects.

Learning 'Recipes for Life' at Kidchen Club
"If you feed a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for life…」 (Anonymous)
This old Chinese proverb serves both as an inspiration and a mission for Kidchen Club. It poses a critical question to us, as parents, on how to best equip our children with the life skills through food knowledge and cooking so they will grow up to become food savvy and healthy eaters.
While we put a tremendous effort and attention to equip our children with all things academic, we often neglect the life skills that would help set them on a path to a healthful and happy lifestyle. Lifelong eating habits are formed during a child's early years. Therefore, Kidchen Club is an ideal platform for responsible parents to assist their children on the forming of a healthy relationship with food and to lay the foundation for a sound eating habit that they will carry with them for a lifetime.
Kidchen Club exists for the purpose and we approach this challenging mission in a kid-friendly way by letting children play and have fun with food through their natural learning tools—their 5 senses—to process new information as children learn best when they see, touch, taste, smell and hear at the same time!
Given cooking is the only learning activity that allows kids to use their 5 senses and that food is a powerful learning tool due to its relational property, we take this advantage to integrate and introduce various academic concepts (i.e., English, Mathematics and Science), life skills and general knowledge (i.e., culture and tradition & geography, table manners & dining etiquettes) as well as a child's personal, emotional and social developmental skills, into our creative, kids culinary inspired curriculum based on multi-sensory exploration and multi-disciplinary approach.
