MUMSPICK: 9 Reasons why you should bring your kids to KidZania

4:22 PM


Role-play comes naturally for kids. In fact role-playing is a kind of play that has continued across generations. Child development experts believe that role-play is one of the most effective ways to learn. 

Talking about role-playing activities for children, just recently we were able to have our first visit at KidZania Manila where me and my kids got so engrossed with all the role-playing activities that this newest play city has to offer.

KidZania Manila takes pride of its high level educational and entertainment facility – providing a realistic and interactive environment for children to play out numerous roles of their own choice. But more than the fun and exciting activities that kids can enjoy in this entertainment themed-city, there are also a lot of knowledgeable experiences that our little offsprings can take home.

Here are 9 reasons why you should bring your kids to KidZania:

1 EXPERIENCE THE FUN!

At KidZania Manila, kids have the unique opportunity to explore a multitude of career possibilities in a realistic and interactive environment. Every detail is intended to project authenticity: from the activity itself, to uniforms and costumes, to the work gear and tools – and even the city interiors. 


KidZania Manila really is the ultimate role-playing environment for kids 4-14 years old, offering over 60 role-playing activities with a wide range of difficulty to meet the abilities and interests of children. It’s an awesome and fun experience for each and every kid!

2 A SAFE AND SECURED ENVIRONMENT

KidZania is an indoor facility that provides a safe & fun retreat for kids. Professional security for each kid such as the RFID bracelets and other measures such as CCTV monitoring cameras, paging system, and emergency facility features are in place to ensure that each child remains safe while inside KidZania Manila.  KidZania Manila is a safe, unique, and interactive environment where children can discover, explore, and learn about the adult world – in a kid-sized city built just for them!
Staffs and facilities can also accommodate and assist children with special needs and disabilities. A guardian or parent will be allowed to accompany children with special needs and assist them in doing the activities

3 EDUCATIONAL + ENTERTAINMENT

Each fun and engaging activity is designed by educators and facilitated by well-trained staffs for optimum learning synthesis. KidZania Manila’s safe and realistic facility provides a great environment to bring these activities to life.


The activity format is learner-centered where Zupervisors take the lead from the observed comprehension skills and existing knowledge of the child participants. With a low Zupervisor to child ratio (range of 1:4 and 1:8), Zupervisors can facilitate activities effectively and harness teaching opportunities in every session. 

Zupervisors also use scaffold learning strategy to adapt the activity according to the age and skill level of every set of the participants. 

4 REAL INDUSTRIES + REAL EXPERIENCE

KidZania Manila offers a reality based environment. The establishments were sponsored by companies and brands giving the kids a simulated experience of the actual city where they really do big things independently as citizens of their own nation. All activities are reality-based, hands-on, and interactive. Kids also get to wear realistic uniforms and use realistic work tools!


KidZania’s leading industry partners provide technical expertise and know-how to each activity. The industry partners help guide the content with real life business practices – making the activities as authentic as possible.

5 FIRST CLASS FACILITY

It’s a play city built to scale for children – complete with paved streets, transport system, and a functioning economy. With 8,000 square meters of play space, children can explore their interests and learn life skills through over 70 immersive role playing activities. 



Facilities for the adults are also available providing convenience and comfort.


6 LEARNING THROUGH PLAY

Kids primarily love to play. But we shouldn’t underestimate a child's play.  It may look like leisure time, but when children are playing they're actually developing crucial life skills, preparing their brains for the challenges of adulthood. 


In KidZania, play has taken into a higher level where kids do not only enjoy the benefits of a nice and cozy environment but a meaningful and interactive kind of play through experiential learning.


7 SKILLS DEVELOPMENT THROUGH HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

KidZania allow kids to make sense of the world around them, building physical, mental, and social skills they need to succeed in their adult lives. Role-play is a form of experiential learning, children can move about, put themselves in someone else’s shoes, wear a costume and use props, communicate and collaborate with other children, and make decisions in character. All of these allow them to take risks and explore different experiences.


Activities in KidZania Manila have been developed to complement the Philippine K-12 initiative. The activities help kids learn 21st century skills such as good communication, problem solving, decision making, critical thinking, teamwork, earning and managing money, hence establishing confidence and independence within themselves.


8 FINANCIAL LITERACY

Relevant establishments like the Bank, Supermarket, Department Store, Pharmacy, and Tax Office, allow kids to learn about the value of money. When kids work, they earn KidZos - KidZania's own currency. They can choose to save or spend what they earn. They would learn the importance of hard work and the advancement of skills in order for them to be competitive and how it’s like to become a part of a community.


Not only that they learn about money, when to spend and when to save, but the kids will also appreaciate and establish a deeper understanding of the challenges that we, as parents are facing as an adult in the real world. Money is earned through hard work; therefore it must be spent wisely.

9 KIDS RULE!

Rights of the child are defined in their own nation as KidZanians. In the development of this new world, they recognized a need to document their beliefs and their wish for independence.


They began by establishing six fundamental rights:
  • To Be
  • To Know
  • To Create
  • To Share
  • To Care
  • To Play        

KidZania Manila is a totally unique haven for the kids and we believe that it is worth the time and money. (Trust me!) To know more about our KidZania story and have a peek inside this entertaining city, you may check my blog HERE.
