Every child loves to play, and indoor playgrounds offer a sheltered and secure area just for that. Such play centres may be a dime a dozen these days, but what sets eXplorerkid apart is its focus on character development.
A leisure and lifestyle choice by NTUC Club, eXplorerkid provides all-round holistic development for children aged 12 years and below. It runs educational programmes and learning journeys, such as Speak Up! Kids, a public speaking competition, that cater to the mental development of kids while honing their leadership and social skills.
It runs two indoor playgrounds at E!Hub in Downtown East and AMK Hub – these are the best places to head to boost the motor skills of kids of all ages.
Play till you drop
Your little Energizer Bunny will be wowed by one of the largest indoor playgrounds in Singapore at the recently revamped centre at Downtown East. There are six play stations within the 10,000 sq ft space – a challenging multilevel play system, a glowing ball pit, a rock climbing structure, a toddler play area, a sand play corner, as well as an obstacle course called Adventure Highlands.
This two-level obstacle course will get Junior's adrenaline pumping by posing a fun challenge to his physical and mental abilities.
Kids taller than 110cm can try the rope course with a suspension bridge on the second level, designed to test their concentration, balance and nerves. Younger ones can build their confidence and enhance their motor skills in the lower level with their parents walking alongside them.
eXplorerkid also offers themed birthday party packages and organises annual events, such as Baby & Junior Race, to further cater to the needs and wants of young families.
Let your adventure begin on the third floor of Downtown East, E!Hub, 1 Pasir Ris Close, or #04-02 AMK Hub, 53 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. For more information, visit www.explorerkid.com. Rates for kids range from $9 for unlimited play during off-peak timings for members, to $30 for unlimited play during peak hours for non-members. Infants below a year old enter for free, while toddlers up to two years old pay less.
