Setting a New Milestone in Singapore: Helping Kids Learn through Role-play
Designed to be best suited for children aged 4 and above, KidZania Singapore works closely with real-world brands to create a city that is as realistic as possible. Children will be able to choose between occupations and activities through role-play, and learn about key values and life skills in the process.
With the new Industry Partners, kids canprotect the streets as a policeman with the Singapore Police Force, save the day as a fireman with the Singapore Civil Defence Force, pamper themselves with a makeoverusingCest Moi’s specially formulated products for children, and engage in green workshops to gain a greaterappreciation of nature and environmental awareness with Garden Asia.
Kids will have a wide variety of options to try out their dream occupations, as well as have a better understanding of the skills and importance of each occupation. Parents will also be able to participate in selected role-play activities, as well as take an active role in understanding their children’s inclinations and learning process.
A smooth and efficient KidZanian city that blends with Singapore’s productivity focus
As part of the Memorandum of Understanding, KidZania Singapore has put in place various initiatives to empower its staff and increase productivity within the kid-sized city. They include self-help mobile kiosks, the use of RFID bracelets, a HR scheduler, notes counting machines for cash and kidZos currency, and solutions for inventory management and on-going maintenance. WDA and e2i will support KidZania Singapore’s training needs.
“The real challenge for any theme park is to maintain the energy behind its guest experience, which hinges upon its greatest asset – our staff. Training and empowerment of our collaborators, across all levels, are key to motivate them to passionately deliver guest experience of the highest quality,” said Leong Yue Weng, KidZania Singapore’s General Manager.
