Which class should I enroll my child in?

Aside from age, we recommend picking the class based on your child’s physical dexterity (i.e. using a pair of scissors or tape-dispenser), emotional readiness (i.e. sportsmanship, patience), and social confidence (i.e. being in front of a crowd, teamwork). If you have any question about our classes, please contact us.

More Details

Who will be conducting the program?

The Mind Movers, the resident scientists of The Mind Museum, will facilitate all the activities in The Mind Museum premises (classroom, galleries, and Science in the Park).  

Can my child just join a few sessions?

The workshops are designed to provide opportunities for learning and inter and intra-personal development. We require all the participants to join from day 1 for them to enjoy the full experience.

Is there a graduation ceremony?

We would like you to save the date for your kids’ culminating activity in the Junior Mind Mover program. Each JMM is allowed to bring 4 guests. Mark your calendars on the following dates: Tots (April 13, Sat), Primes (May 11, Sat), Tweens (May 25, Sat)

Can my child bring food and drinks?

There will be designated break times for each session. We encourage you to pack peanut-free snacks or light meals for Tots & Primes, and snacks & lunch for Tweens, and a water bottle. There are no food establishments within the museum. JMMs will not be allowed to leave the museum premises to purchase food.

Can my child be accompanied by an adult or guardian?

JMM Tots are allowed one adult companion each who can accompany them until the classroom door and explore the museum galleries while waiting for the session to finish. Only authorized persons with the designated fetchers’ ID will be allowed to sign the kids out.

JMM Primes can be dropped off and fetched by guardians at the museum lobby. Only authorized persons with the designated fetchers’ ID will be allowed to sign the kids out.

Who will take care of my child’s medical needs? What happens if my child becomes sick or injured?

A safety marshall and first aid personnel will be on site during the entire program. The first aid response personnel will first assess the injury or illness. Non-emergency incidents like bruises or scrapes will be treated on-site and an incident report will be sent to you. 

For specific health conditions which require prescription medication, participants must bring their own properly-labeled medicine each day of the program. Please inform the staff of the medical condition and prescribed use and dosage of the medicine. (See Registration Form for health inquiry).

How is inappropriate behavior handled?

Behavior that jeopardizes the safety and enjoyment for other participants and/or staff will not be tolerated. House rules of the museum and classroom will be discussed during the first day. The Mind Museum reserves the right to manage and reprimand all participants accordingly.

Is the program refundable?

No refunds will be issued. However, you may nominate another participant to take over your slot, but he/she must meet the requirement of the program (age, etc).
