Welcome To ChefLab

Experimentation. Practice. Discovery. Three things that science, cooking and Montessori education have in common.

Guided by the Montessori philosophy based on the principle of free choice of purposeful activity, with its carefully curated curriculum, ChefLab designed a program that is uniquely positioned to deliver on this ideal. Our mission is to provide a safe, enriching, environment where exploration with all senses is encouraged and the relationship between people and nature is never taken for granted.

The kitchen is a fresh yet familiar space to engage in the world around us. We believe that children deserve an integrated education philosophy and that experiential learning can help develop a deeper appreciation for nourishing our growing minds and bodies. Through a Montessori-style model of purposeful play, ChefLab allows for freedom within limitation and encourages learning through exploration.

ChefLab welcomes all beliefs and practices. We strive to build a community where diversity is a chance to learn, and empathy replaces judgement. We are a community of warmth, confidence, and understanding.  As an individual, I am determined to know who your children are, how they learn, and what they need.  As a community, the ChefLab learning experience is designed to support and challenge each-other as part of a team through peer communication and individual responsibility.


ChefLab’s exclusive dual curriculum compliments its class model. Before entering the kitchen-lab, children are presented with Montessori-style custom made materials designed to peak their curiosity and invite independant activity. Once mastered, ChefLab’ers remove their lab coats, don their chef-hats, and experiment with edible ingredients to apply what they’ve learned – ChefLab style.


ChefLab’s daily afternoon program offers an integrated Montessori style model of purposeful play through art, language, and cultural studies.  Our carefully curated curriculum is designed to support each child’s cognitive, emotional, moral, and social development as they create their own road map toward success.

Dual Curriculum

ChefLab’s two-dimensional curriculum keeps our minds and hands busy manipulating materials, solving problems independently, and building self-confidence while tasting the satisfaction that comes from accomplishments.
