Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program operates each Friday. Students from years 3-6 are engaged and challenged through garden and cooking lessons. The aim of the program is pleasurable food education for young children.

Some of the principles underpinning the program include: 

  • The best way to encourage children to choose food that is healthy is to engage them in fun, hands-on experiences in growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing such food at the earliest possible age.
  • Children are more likely to experiment with foods they have grown or prepared themselves.
  • Life-long eating habits develop early.
