Our mega kindergarten event organised by the South China Morning Post provides the perfect platform for young parents to discover and explore opportunities for early childhood education for their children of playgroup, pre-nursery and kindergarten schooling age.

Panel Discussion #2 - Raising Little Thinkers

In today’s global and rapidly changing world, children do much of their learning through step-by-step Youtube videos, toys with prescribed instructions and pre-scripted video games, hindering original thinking and imagination.  Failure is not embraced, creating a risk-averse mindset that struggles with problem solving. How can parents encourage their children to be better thinkers?
