Flex Academies Announces Launch of Partner Tiny Chefs in Connecticut

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Flex Academies, the leader in safe, high-quality afterschool enrichment programs announces that one of its certified partners, Tiny Chefs, has joined Flex in its new school partnerships in Connecticut.

Tiny Chefs encourages children to discover the joys of cooking while learning basic educational skills and culinary techniques. The company is dedicated to providing interactive and educational children’s cooking classes at schools, camps and community centers. It is a certified partner with Flex Academies in the Washington Metro Area. When Flex expanded its afterschool enrichment programs into Connecticut in 2015, Tiny Chefs accompanied them.

Flex Academies President Joshua Chernikoff sees this as another benefit of the partnerships his company cultivates. “We work with PTAs and schools to offer and manage high-quality afterschool enrichment,” says Chernikoff, “but we are also in partnership with our vendors, and it’s very rewarding to see their businesses grow too.”

Anna Reeves is president of Tiny Chefs, a business she started in 2006 in the Metro D.C. Area. She is thrilled about her company’s expansion into another state. “Expansion into Connecticut means growth for our company and an opportunity for more children to experience our program,” says Reeves. She says that the company plans to franchise in the next year. “We aim to instill the love and joy of cooking in every child,” she says.

She adds, “Our partnership with Flex Academies has been wonderful as we expand in the public school sector. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to offer our classes in many schools that Flex has partnerships with.”

Flex Academies has worked with over 400 vendors to offer more than 580 unique activites and 1100 hours of afterschool enrichment programming, now in four states. To date, more than 12,000 students have enrolled in afterschool programs provided by Flex Academies.
