Waratah SDS offers a cooking program that focuses on building lifelong skills for now and the future. The program is tailored toward the strengths, interests and skill level of the students. Students are encouraged to learn through a “hands on approach.” Along with developing kitchen safety and hygiene skills, students also have the opportunity to increase their skills in communication, fine motor, sensory exploration, spatial awareness, team work, sharing and choice making. The cooking program also helps students to develop independence, confidence, initiative and the ability to complete tasks from start to finish.


The students are supported in a fun, nurturing, calm and positive environment!!
