When one talks about enrichment for kids, what normally comes to mind are classes for subjects such as Maths, Science and Music.
Now, not that there is anything wrong with that…but wouldn’t your kids (and you!) just love it if there was a centre that offered enrichment classes in skills such as Baking, Cooking and Entrepreneurship?
Well, you know what, there is a place right here in Singapore that does just that….use activities such as baking and cooking to build a child’s motor skills and spatial awareness. Also, the team at Genius R Us has recently added to its repertoire of fun-based learning and included a camp for the little entrepreneurs.
Read on to find out more about what they have in store for you this November and December.

Introducing Genius R Us!
Genius R Us — in operation since 2002 — is an enrichment centre that believes there is a genius in each child waiting to be uncovered and nurtured.
They offer kids unique learning experiences through workshops such as KidzCanBake!™ and TotsCanBake!™.
This programme is specially designed for little ones aged between two-and-a-half to five years old. It aims at improving kids’ motor skills, increase spatial awareness and foster greater bonding between parents and kids.
*Do note that 1 paying adult should attend the workshop with the child.
If your child is aged between five and 12, then this is the programme for him or her! Kids in this programme will love making new friends and learning essential life skills.
What’s more, Genius R Us even offers concept birthday parties for kids! Imagine the thrill and sense of accomplishment your child will get from knowing that he/she baked his/her own cake — awesome, right?

- Little ones learn how to take pride in what they do and see the results of their time in the kitchen.
- Kids learn observation skills and also how take instructions and create agendas.
- Baking offers little ones the experiential opportunity to engage the senses of sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing.
- Little ones learn basic arithmetic concepts as they learn to count, tell apart units of measurements and more.
- Baking is a great way for kids to express themselves creatively, for example, while frosting a cake or decorating a cupcake.
