Cherie Hearts Kidz Campus @Pasir Ris  Elias Mall  -   Event:  Collaboration with Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) 2018

As one of our community service projects, our centre has started to collaborate with CPAS since Year 2017.

First, we started with our K2 children’s visit to its Classroom (located at Block 629 Pasir Ris Drive 3) for Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children (EIPIC) on 17 August 2017.

This year, our collaboration with CPAS has been extended to invite CPAS students included not only our children visit to its classroom but also

Through this collaboration, our children will learn about value of respect and empathy towards others who are different and with disabilities.

Our staff and children had been very excited to meet the children from CPAS as they felt that it would be a good opportunity for them to experience interacting with children from CPAS. Objectives:

Children with cerebral palsy will have opportunities to experience in our daily activity.

Children will learn the value of respect and empathy towards special persons.

Children become more accepting of others who are different from them by looking past their differences, focusing more on their similarities.

Thus, together, we brainstormed with CPAS staff and scheduled and planned activities for CPAS students to interact and have fun with our Kindergartens’ students.

Our K2 Children Visit to CPAS

Before journey to CPAS, our children had been engaged in a sharing session to identify what it meant to be kind and act of kindness. The children learned and discussed about how they could be friends to children with disabilities.

After that, our K2 children started their journey to CPAS.

On 29 March 2018, upon arriving CPAS, the children were first engaged in simple music and movement activities and explored with a few different musical instruments.

After that, the children gathered around to hold onto a “giant” parachute and then tried to roll the ball into the middle of the parachute. This activity gave children opportunity to interact and build relationship with others.

After the visit, our children shared and discussed among their peers and teachers about what they had done at CPAS. Through the visit, they learned about showing respect for diversity and recognising that everyone is unique.

CPAS Children Visit to Cherie Hearts Kidz Campus @Pasir Ris Elias Mall

Knock! knock! Our CPAS friends came to play again! This time we were closer than before. We sat in a circle and sang a hello song together.

This time, we prepared even more activities for them to play with us. The children made animal puppets and decorated it together! ‘Woof!’ ‘Meow!’ ‘Raw!’

Next, the children were provided with paint, markers and drawing blocks to do some artworks.

“Let me show off my works!”

“Let’s show off our work once again!”

“It was so cool! We are looking forward to more play dates together!”
