Nothing like the smell of your favorite food cooking in the kitchen to bring back memories.
The Community Services Department aims to create lifelong memories for your family, and the Chefsville Pre-K Cooking Class is no exception! This innovative new program introduces kids to the world of cooking by teaching them fundamental life skills like kitchen safety and how to complete a recipe. Participants use simple math, explore world culture, and put their fine motor skills to use while creating a tasty treat to enjoy with friends.
Teaching young children to cook is crucial to creating healthy life-long habits. Children who participate in the kitchen contribute to the family chores and are also more likely to develop healthy eating patterns throughout their life. Introducing kids to cooking is a delicious way to bond with the family, pass down traditions, and explore creativity.
The Community Services Department always seeks to provide quality programming for community members of all ages. If your child enjoyed this program, don’t miss out other opportunities to instill a love of cooking in your little one. More Chefsville Pre-K Cooking Classes will be available on May 4 and May 18. We won’t let the young kids have all the fun, however! Check out the Teen IncrEDIBLES Cooking Class for ages 12-16 on May 1 and May 15. Learning to cook can be a family affair! Click here to register.
Make sure to keep an eye out on our website and social media pages to stay on top of all our upcoming events. We’re constantly cooking up new ways to bring a smile to your face. Bon Appetit!

Registration is now open! Get started here.
Program registration is carried out through ACTIVE Net. For step-by-step instructions for creating your ACTIVE Net account, visit this page.
Although it’s still awhile away, Southlake Parks and Recreation has already started to prepare to move into The Marq Southlake Champions Club with a switch in registration software to CSI. The new software will replace the current registration software, Active Network, and is expected to go live in a few months.
When participants go to register for programs they will notice the website looks a little different. Now, instead of having to search for an activity, you will be able to select a category to begin the search process.
One important transition note to keep in mind: All users will have to create a new account. Account information will NOT carry over from Active Network.
What does this mean for me?
Before actually registering for a program, you will be prompted to create a new account. Because CSI will also be used once Champions Club is fully operational, it will look like you are registering for a membership. Don’t worry, when you are asked to select your membership type, simply select the “Patron” membership and Parks and Recreation as the site. This will allow you to register as you normally would.
For more information about CSI and step-by-step instructions to help you navigate CSI visit www.SouthlakeParksandRec.com or call us at (817) 748-8019.
