Yes, all cooking projects are either prepped to be individual or group projects.

This really depends on the participants. If we do not have time during the party for you to open gifts, you can use the area outside of the school to open presents with guests.
How do you handle food allergies?
We work with food allergies every day and can make modifications when given advance notice. We are nut-free for birthday parties and can provide gluten free options for an additional $10 per guest.

We find it is too difficult for kids under 5 to participate, but they are welcome to be at the party without participating in the cooking.

What are the release forms for?
We ask all parents sign the release forms before the party. We do not use nuts in class. We can accommodate gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and other diets. The release form is to make us aware of any food allergies and contact information for parent/guardians in case of an emergency.
