Discovery Bay preschoolers need a fun and nurturing environment in which to learn. Here are some top picks from around town!
EpicLand’s Epic Explorers, held every Tuesday and Thursday from 9.45am to 10.45am is suitable for kids crawling to three years. Come join their Epic class as they combine music and movement, singing and obstacle play. Children learn through play; having fun with bubbles and balls fires up their imaginations and helps them develop gross motor skills.
Epic Explorers is included in EpicLand’s Happy Hour price of HK$80, with playtime until 11.30am.
Funfit’s Wiggle Worms (from six months), Busy Bees (from walking) and Tumble Tots (from 18 months) classes provide 45 minutes of non-stop action! Children have fun creeping and crawling through tunnels, bopping and bouncing on the bouncy castle, moving and grooving to musical activities and much more. Funfit guarantees to shake those sillies out and train children to be confident and capable movers! Parachute games and messy play provide lots of extra fun!
Funfit’s Little Steps (one to two-year-olds) and Big Steps (two to four-year-olds) classes aim to prepare children for ‘drop-off style’ playgroups. Funfit retains the structure of a playgroup, but a parent or guardian remains in the class with the child. This allows children to become more independent at their own pace, while benefiting from a stimulating social and educational playgroup environment. In every class, activities include circle time, free time, snack and story time, a craft activity, sensory play and fitness fun. From time to time, Funfit also introduces a learning theme to enhance children’s development throughout the term.
