Kids Learn Through Play!
When children play, they develop their language, math and social interaction skills. When play is fun and child-directed, children are motivated to engage in opportunities to learn. That means they want to learn more.
“Those things you learn without joy you will forget easily.”
Brain Matter is rolling out a series of enrichment classes to allow children learn through play
1. Little Explorer Kids: Science & Architecture
This is a 2 hour teaser where children aged 9 to 12 years old to learn how urban greenery and architecture work together.
The content was developed by Dr Terrence Tan, a university researcher.
