Singapore’s Best Educational Activity Days Out

Singapore is a vibrant and dynamic city with a multitude of activities available for people of all ages, and where your kids are concerned, there are always opportunities for them to learn while they are having fun. 

When you manage to get the fine balance between education and fun, you are stimulating your child’s abilities while allowing them the maximum ability to retain information, while they also assess where their interests lie as they grow. 

Let’s be clear, educational activities don’t mean going to a museum and just walking around, they need to have a level of energy that’s engaging to make them worthwhile. That is the key to making them as beneficial as possible. 

Whether your child is interested in art, animals, sports or science, there’s something available in Singapore and it’s a great supplement to their preschool learning. They can learn about the solar system, anatomy, expression, or just keep fit, it’s all going to support them on the journey to ‘big’ school. 

Another benefit of doing educational activities outside of preschool is to get your child used to not always plumping for video games, movies or applications and their main hobby. While there can be some educational elements to those options, there is a lack of interaction or social engagement, something that is of paramount importance for their development going forward. 


Let’s take a look at the best education activity days out in Singapore:
