KidZania, the world’s fastest growing experiential edutainment attraction, updated today on efforts to develop a holistic edutainment experience that benefits children even before they step into KidZania Singapore. KidZania Singapore is inviting local educators to have a say in shaping the attraction’s activities through initiatives such as organized “school trips” and a preview session.

These initiatives will be rolled out progressively as KidZania gets ready to open its city doors on Sentosa Island in the second half of 2015.

Diverse Learning Experiences to support Children’s Career Awareness in Singapore

Best suited for children aged 4 and above, KidZania offers diverse learning experiences that are specifically designed to aid social, emotional and intellectual growth through the development of work and study skills, positive attitudes, creative thinking and self-esteem.

KidZania Singapore would like to engage local educators to tap on their expertise and feedback in order to enhance the attraction’s activities. From now till KidZania Singapore’s launch, educators who are keen to organize group sessions or work with KidZania can also write in tolearn@kidzania.com.sg. A special preview session for KidZania in Singapore will be scheduled closer to the launch date. KidZania Singapore welcomes feedback and suggestions as it strives for continual improvement to ensure relevance of the attraction’s activities to its visitors’ needs.

“KidZania offers a unique opportunity for educators to complement the academic learning experience by reinforcing existing classroom knowledge, to support the cognitive and character development of a child. As we get closer to bringing KidZania to Singapore, we welcome local educators to partner us to educate, empower and inspire our future generation,” said William Edwards, Chief Operating Officer, Themed Attractions and Resorts Sdn. Bhd.
