Partnering with KidZania

HA Launchpad believes in nurturing young minds and preparing them for significant transitions like the leap from Kindergarten 2 (K2) to Primary 1 (P1). We understand that this transition can be daunting for children and their families, which is why we've partnered with KidZania. Together, we aim to foster independence and smooth this pivotal journey.

We recognise the importance of equipping children with essential life skills and confidence, crucial for their success in primary school and beyond. By immersing them in KidZania's interactive environment, we provide hands-on experiences that encourage decision-making, responsibility, and creativity.

Depending on the age group, we have developed tailored programmes focusing on skills we believe are vital for their development. These programmes are designed to meet the unique needs and interests of each child, ensuring they gain valuable experiences that prepare them for the next phase of their education journey.

Through this collaboration, we are committed to supporting each child's individual growth, ensuring they enter primary school with the confidence and readiness to thrive, letting their dreams take flight.
