The city is designed to create an environment for children to play and learn at the same time. Inside the 2300sq. ping city there are 50 professions and over 70 different occupations waiting for kids to explore. The settings allow games and role-playing scenarios to stimulate children’ learning capability. Once entered into BabyBoss, the children set their minds on only two things “learn from playing” and “learn from doing”. This environment opens up their abilities from within and sparks unlimited potentialities. The concept of money and how to value it are thoroughly taught within the city. The hands-on learning process is not only fun but also very rewarding. « less
