KIDZANIA, MANILA: THE LAND OF COOL KIDS

1 Comment

Immediately following our trip from the MMDA’s Children’s Road Safety Park, the Children’s Ark Preparatory School, as part of its outbound tour, cruised down for an adventure at Kidzania, Manila, also referred to as The Land of Cool Kids — an interactive environment built especially for kids to delve, travel and learn about the world of grown-ups in a scaled-down community.

A miniature district which provides a dynamic way to orient kids in performing real-life reality-based characters such as firefighters, aviators, cooks and bakers, medical team, entertainers and so much more. They get to have hands-on experience on different trades and they do it practically in lifelike conditions.

The indoor play city was made in cooperation with some of the country’s leading industry partners (Cebu Pacific, BPI, LBC Express, St. Lukes Medical Center and so on) which provide the technical facilities and know-how for every department.

Enter Kidzania, Manila.

Here at Kidzania, everyone is received with a warm”Kai!” The KidZanian greeting for “hello”. Say Kai to everyone you meet. A few local expressions includes “Zaz” which is their version of wow; “zanks” for thank you; “Z-U” for bye!

Another popular role-play at Kidzania is being a member of the LBC team. They lined up and take turns to slipped into the familiar LBC gown.

A note from the courier company: The LBC KidZania branch teaches kids the value of efficiency, the benchmark of a trusted leader in the industry, in the simplest way possible, but also the intangible but no less important concepts of respect for other’s property, valuing hard work, friendliness and customer service.

Kids pick-up and deliver packages across Kidzania. A great way to teach them how to value, handle, and store goods.
