At Saturday kids, we believe in play because play is the best way to learn. We opened up Playroom for families to understand the power of play and how coding can help your kids build a better future for themselves.
Playroom is an environment we designed, with appropriate guidance and materials, where your kids can experiment with coding tools. What we truly want is for your kids to see for themselves where their imagination and curiosity can take them.
The Playroom is beyond just spontaneous play, it is an experience that is only achievable in the environment we have designed.
All you need to know
Let kids experience constructive play via observing how things work in their surroundings.
For the premiere theme, we have chosen Play in the City – using Strawbees to recreate things we see in our city every day.

Buildings in the City
Oh! The stuff you'll learn
For the premiere theme, we have chosen Play in the city to enable kids to mimic things they see and feel around them. So in the play sessions, we would inspire kids to:
Explore various 3D structures and mechanisms
Experiment with servo motors and robots
Build your own creative project with Strawbees!
Life skills you'll learn
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
Your kid will love it.
If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.
