Know more about KidZania's Corporate Philosophy
Role-playing is a timeless and universal childhood activity across the globe. It is an embedded behaviour in all children and is an essential ingredient in the KidZania experience. Role-playing is fun – and has very positive learning, psychological and motivational benefits.
At KidZania, children have the opportunity of having real-world experiences while assuming the role of firemen, construction worker, police officer, and fashion designer, among others.
All KidZania activities are designed with an experiential learning process in mind, channelled through fun role-play activities that seamlessly combine education and entertainment. The overall concept is quite ancient, as Aristotle once said, “for the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”
KidZania Mumbai offers 100+ role-playing activities in over 65 establishments. These activities include an introduction to aviation, animation, acting, engineering, medical sciences among others. A university inside the KidZania premises encourages kids to spend their kidZos to sharpen their skills.
Since Experiential Learning involves learning from direct experience or “doing” rather than listening or memorizing facts, it’s strongly linked to KidZania’s concept, supported by this relevant quote from Xun Kuang: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
KidZania's activities are known to seamlessly combine education and entertainment.
Role-play is a form of Experiential Learning and an effective learning tool that encourages children to become active participants. Children are free to explore the city on their own, put themselves in someone else’s shoes, wear costumes, use props, communicate and make decisions.
Child development experts believe that learning from role-playing is far more likely to stick with children than traditional educational methods like doing exercise sheets. Through role-play, children are making discoveries and experiments with firsthand knowledge rather than hearing or reading about others’ experiences.
Several child development experts outline the benefits of role-playing in their impact on the below core skills:
KidZania has its own functional economy just like any other nation, around which the experience of KidZania lies. Throughout the journey of KidZania, kids learn to earn, spend and save kidZos, thus better understanding various aspects of financial literacy.
Integrated into the role-play element of KidZania, kids reap the benefits of the working world by being paid for the activities they undertake with KidZania’s very own currency, kidZos, as part of the city’s supply and demand economy.
Upon entering KidZania, kids will receive a cheque of kidZos and have the choice to use kidZos as either cash to purchase goods and services at all KidZania locations.
Where are kidZos saved? We have a banking system where children can save their kidZos, request a debit card and manage their finances at the bank branch or through the ATMs, located inside KidZania only. When opening a savings account, kids will receive their very own debit card that will be customized with their name and signature.
Please note: kidZos can be used only in KidZania.
