Little Kitchen Academy (LKA), the first-of-its-kind, Montessori-inspired cooking academy for kids ages three through teen, is based in Vancouver, Canada. The concept was co-founded by proven global brand and franchise expert and serial entrepreneur Brian Curin, his wife Felicity Curin, a Montessori-trained, culinary expert, and visionary, along with social impact investor and entrepreneur Praveen Varshney.
LKA is a joyous place of discovery that through cooking instruction gives children the tools and experiences to acquire vital life skills that help to foster confidence, self-reliable healthy eating habits, and socialization. LKA is focused on providing a safe, inspiring, and empowering space for children to identify, develop and refine their senses, by applying age-appropriate math and science skills in real-world settings, and embracing practices such as recycling, composting and the concept of philanthropy in order to make positive, socially-conscious contributions to the world. LKA’s mission is to create a more educated, able and healthy society through mindful, healthy eating choices, and is committed to changing lives, from scratch to consumption.
