Top-Notch Teachers

Our teachers are fantastic educators with a true passion for cooking.  Each is trained by our CEO and have all the tools and skills to lead an effective cooking class with kids.  

Cooking For Kids At An Advanced Level

Most Cooking classes are too simple (i.e. smoothies, salad, etc.) but not with LIFT.  We teach kids how to make Empanadas, Sushi Rolls, Risotto, Kale Bruschetta and much more.

Niche Is Better

Other companies offer a variety plate of classes, but they lack the quality you get from truly  FOCUSED curriculum.  We specialize in just two subjects and thus have become the GO-TO place for Cooking and Robotics for Kids programs.
