CAP Tulsa’s early childhood education programs can help you strengthen your relationship with your child while preparing her for kindergarten. Our Teachable Moments provide tips and information to help you connect with your child and make sure they are developmentally on track.


There are lots of opportunities to count, measure and estimate while you’re cooking with your child. When you’re in the kitchen together, talk and compare the sizes of different foods and containers! As you prepare a meal together ask them which fruit is the smallest or the largest. Ask them to describe amounts in bowls and cups as small, medium or big.  Allow your toddler to drop in food pieces or spoonfuls of ingredients and count aloud together. These conversations help with early math skills!
