School Program 2020 Cancellation Notice
School Program 2020 Cancellation Notice: Due to public health restrictions put in place by Alberta Health Services and with no confirmation on the decision if schools will resume in the Fall, ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen has made the difficult decision not to host our Kids Can Cook School Program for the remainder of 2020. We will revisit the possibility of hosting our Kids Can Cook School Program again in 2021.
Kids Can Cook
Our award-winning program focuses on teaching Grade 5’s the necessary skills to be safe in the kitchen. Our culinary team will facilitate an interactive learning experience and group discussion as students rotate through a series of stations. At each learning station, hands-on activities are tied to curriculum and skills development.
We are only able to host Grade 5 students.
From September to June, program runs on Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings, sessions are from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Each session can only have a maximum number of 28 students, there will not be any exceptions to this number. We want to ensure the students get the full attention of our Chef Instructors and also want to ensure full safety measures are followed.
There will be a charge of $250 per session booked.
Final numbers and allergy information will be due 4 weeks before your scheduled date
Invoices will be emailed at the beginning of the school year and will be due upon the terms of the invoice.
Failure to pay will result in cancellation of your class booking(s).
Transportation and Parking
Transportation to and from the ATCO Park Learning Centre is the sole responsibility of the School to organize logistics (inclusive of securing the bus).
For bus drop-off, participants are required to be dropped-off and picked-up on the south side of the building along in the drop-off loop. This map highlights the appropriate drop-off zone.
This location has been selected for easy access and to ensure the safety of all of our participants when arriving and leaving our ATCO Park Learning Centre.
Accessibility and Language
Our Learning Centre is wheelchair accessible and our instructors are all certified in First Aid.
If a student(s) within the class requires additional attention or has special needs, please ensure that the appropriate support is provided to properly accommodate the student.
All course materials and programs are in English. Please make us aware of any ESL (English as a second language) student(s) in your class.
Teacher Responsibilities and Parent Volunteers
Teachers are required to be in attendance with students. Student behaviour is the responsibility of the teacher in attendance, and not that of the ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen Chef Instructors.
Please ensure all attendees wear closed-toe shoes and ensure long hair is tied back for safety when working in the kitchen.
The ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen is NOT an allergy free zone. If you have specific concerns regarding a student’s allergies, please contact us at (403) 245-7630.
Our team of professional Chef Instructors will be here to welcome you and guide you through the day’s events. We do, however, recommend bringing a few extra hands. Teachers are responsible for coordinating parent volunteers in accordance to their school policy.
No cell phones or electronic devices (i.e. iPods, laptops, tablets, etc.) by teachers, volunteers or students are permitted to be used during the duration of the class program.
