JCK Gives

One of Junior Chefs Kitchen's core pillars is community. We are focused on a strong commitment to fighting hunger and educating our students about how they can get involved. Students will learn about the importance of each organization and feel empowered to help serve their community. 

We believe in transparency and have outlined more specifics on how we give back to our community below:

  • Monthly bagged lunch donations to Inspiration Corporation serving 200 individuals.
  • Monthly meal delivery donation to Lincoln Park Community Services serving 120 individuals across their two shelters.
  • Monthly meal delivery to First Responders in the community
  • Quarterly staff volunteer days partnered with Nourishing Hope.
  • Through our After-School Programs, we partner with schools by offering our curriculum to those students requiring financial aid.

Our graduates

Children graduate Bright Horizons programs with the skills they need to succeed in private or public school. In surveys, kindergarten and first grade teachers report that Bright Horizons graduates are enthusiastic learners who are socially and academically ready for the years ahead.

As well as the local language in each country our preschools are based in, we offer various ‘immersion classes’ in the afternoons, such as Mandarin, French or Arabic. In some centers, we give bilingual lessons – although primarily, the native tongue of every Safari Kid kindergarten branch is English!
