Age Disclaimer

Here at Rooks to Cooks, we believe “age is just a number”. We recognize and appreciate that maturity levels vary drastically between children and that your child’s age might not be the best indicator of their abilities. If your child wishes to participate in a session but they do not meet the minimum age requirements, do not fret! We are open to accepting them and would love to help work with you to determine whether or not taking part is the best decision for them. To inquire if this is indeed your child’s situation, please email Chef Shai at info@rookstocooks.ca to begin the discussion. We look forward to hearing from you!
