Who doesn’t enjoy making fun yummy treats? Our Cuddle Bugs love it. Every second week we give our little chefs the opportunity to develop their senses and creativity by making themed snacks that are tasty and healthy (most of the time)

They gain confidence in their ability to try new thing and to build their self-esteem and begin to take pride in themselves with their independence and achievements. This eventually contributes in starting to set goals and challenges for themselves.
Independence is also promoted through hygiene and toileting, by means of:
