The Benefits of Baking

At Henderson Early Learning centre, we do a variety of baking with the children from pikelets and biscuits to muffins and scones! We absolutely love seeing how much fun the little ones have when we do baking and how proud they are with the end result! It puts a smile on their wee faces and it has many benefits on top of being fun and delicious. When we are baking with the little ones we aren’t just making food, we are teaching them how to make connections among and across multiple disciplines.
