Spring trips to KidZania!
Throughout March KidsOut provided 92 disadvantaged children with the opportunity attend the wonderful world of KidZania, the indoor city run by kids!
Groups of children aged 4–14 attended a four-hour experience where they explored sixty real-life role play adventures and tested their skills in a multitude of professions. These included the opportunity to work in the police or fire department, a pet wellbeing centre, and even in a TV studio. There were fun-filled and educational activities for every child, no matter what interest!
We’ve had lovely feedback from some of the groups that attended. One mother was eager to say “Thank you for this brilliant day out. My autistic son often needs 2:1 supervision so days out can be very expensive. KidZania was run really well and he coped very well with it. The more successful days out we have with him, the more his and our confidence grows, and we are able to do more things with him.”
A 6 year old attendee said “On the scale from 1 to 10, I give KidZania 207!”
Another parent told us that their 6 year old child “tried things she would never try otherwise. Pretending to be a dentist might help her to overcome her fear of dental appointments, pretending to be a pilot will definitely encourage her to board the plane, etc. Her self-esteem was boosted because she was able to do so many things in a relaxed atmosphere. She was very proud of herself!”
Thank you KidZania for another wonderful month of trips!
