They can help prepare food and cook. Cooking with kids provides practical experience with many essential skills such as reading, following directions, and measuring.

Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning. Each child is valued as a unique individual. Montessori education recognizes that children learn in different ways, and accommodates all learning styles.
Learning through play and balancing the school curriculum with fun activities is always our top priority and policy within the school. Children can learn and make sense of the world around them, whilst learning through play. This helps children develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally and gain the self-confidence to engage in new experiences and with the environment around them.
The Russian Ballet School in Krabi Town works with Sunflower School and provides ballet lessons for any student interested on Friday afternoons at Sunflower. A great opportunity for students to begin ballet.
Sunflower is bringing Art to our students, because we realise the the importance of Art for the development and creativity of little minds. In association with All Art Tutor and Gallery in Krabi Town, we are offering weekly lessons with local artist Kru Ying.
At Sunflower we are passionate about all aspects of learning. We feel a great deal can be learnt from exploring the local community and environment. Field trips to explore local farms and gardens help our students identify how foods grow, what different foods look like, what are produced on the local farms such as rubber, shrimp, fruit and vegetables.
