As we usher in the Lunar New Year, Kinderland has spared no effort in creating a vibrant, festive and culturally enriching atmosphere for our parents, children, and educators. At Kinderland, we embrace diverse cultures, and the Lunar New Year is particularly cherished within the Chinese community, marking a significant celebration for us. From joyfully tossing yusheng, to enchanting lion dance performances, and a parent-child cooking session, our Kinderland family were treated with a variety of fun and exciting activities to welcome the year of the dragon.

Parent-child bonding activities

The Lunar New Year celebrations at Kinderland Preschool @ Woodlands Mart saw exciting parent-child activities such as “Stack the Oranges”, relay games, calligraphy and more. Parents and children of Kinderland Academy @ Yio Chu Kang enjoyed learning how to make jiaozi together, from kneading the dough, folding on the dumpling skins, and adding the dumpling filling.

Kinderland Academy @ Yio Chu Kang also had a “Healthy Cooking for the Lunar New Year” session at the school’s kitchenette. Parents and children were able to learn about the auspicious and symbolic meanings behind some of the snacks served during Lunar New Year, and how to make a dragon cookie as well as healthy yusheng salad.
