When one thinks of family-friendly entertainment in Serangoon, Nex Mall usually comes to mind. But did you know there are so many other interesting places to explore such as museums, parks and cafes around the area?
Here are just some of the things you can do with your child after picking him/her up from MindChamps Preschool in Serangoon.
Try some art jamming near MindChamps PreSchool in Serangoon
Art is a good way to relax and express your creativity regardless of age. Let your tots try their hands out at Art Speaks Studio, which is great for the whole family.
It is open Tuesday to Sunday for three-hour art jamming sessions. Paint, canvas and even a cup of coffee (for the sleepy parents) will be provided.
Ang Mo Kio Town Garden East
This quaint park, built on the site of a former rubber estate, is a lovely place to bring your kids here for a walk or some exercise after school. Being around the lush greenery would help the whole family de-stress. Look out for the rubber seed sculptures throughout the park for a fun game!
Pet and Kid friendly cafe
Sun Ray Cafe is one of the few pet-friendly cafes in Singapore that not only allows your four-legged friends to visit, but also provides a menu for them. Take your kids and dog here to this quiet neighbourhood cafe for some relaxation and good food.
Kid-friendly Arbite Cafe
Tucked away on the second floor, you would be forgiven for not noticing this cafe at Serangoon Garden. The eatery thoughtfully provides legos and toys to entertain your little ones while you tuck into their signature Breakfast Platter or French Toast.
Serangoon Community Park
This is another great place for kids to hang out at after an exciting day at school. Located within the housing area, parents can relax while watching their kids play.
Social Enterprise Foodcourt
Dignity Kitchen is the first social enterprise foodcourt in Singapore working with the disadvantaged and the disabled. You can turn this lunch out into a teachable moment for your kids by telling them how this eatery helps the less fortunate. The staff are also very friendly and would be open to telling your kids more.
There are also numerous places for parents to hang out at while their kids are in preschool, such as Ice Edge Cafe for their unique ice cream. With so many things to do around the area, the whole family would be guaranteed numerous fun-filled, after-school activities.
