By combining these 3 important ingredients with cooking, it produces a very powerful way of learning that is fun, stimulating, hands-on and tasty! Children get to feed the food they cook not only to their body, but also to their brain, enabling the development of knowledge and essential skills for them to thrive in learning and living in the 21st century.
The Development of GUUDNEST’s Culinary-led, STEAMulating Curriculum
Learning is powerful when it is relevant to children’s life
Each and every learning topic is purposely made relevant to children’s lives—from things in their daily living, seasons and holidays to connect them with traditions and culture. This allows children to instantly apply what they have learned, giving them a sense of achievement, purpose, and satisfaction... Hence, they are motivated to expand, improve and invent.
The Delivery of GUUDNEST’s Culinary-led, STEAMulating Curriculum
Each and every workshop has been purposely prepared to give children full STEAMulating and tasty learning experiences. The delivery of each workshop includes:1. A weekly theme deriving from the monthly theme that is relevant to children’s daily living and school learning topics
The quests reveal the unknown! Questions wake children's brains, ignites their curiosity and challenges them to find answers and/or come up with ideas. Our goal for the Learning Quest is to promote critical thinking and communication skills, encourage children to apply existing knowledge and skills as well as expand their knowledge and skills in order to address the Learning Quest.3.

5. It’s Owl’s learning journey: It takes a village to raise a child.
To foster the S.T.E.A.M. mindset and thinking while facilitating children’s communication and social skills, a weekly S.T.E.A.M. challenge based on the learning theme is assigned to the children during the workshop, along with materials and ingredients. Kids will work on their S.T.E.A.M. challenge using our inquiry model and worksheets to build a good learning habit of inquiry and documentation.
Family engagement is critical to each student’s success. Our program encourages the involvement from all stakeholders in a child’s life in their learning through providing parent notes, parent sharing sessions and space for the owl learning community to share their wisdom and goodness.6. Kids’ Club: a supplementary of non-screen activities to stretch the weekly learning theme.
With a looser structure, kids have the opportunity to apply new techniques they have just learned to activities and projects that interest them. Kids can join the kids’ club either before, or after the scheduled workshop.
