During our kids’ learning journey, children utilised their five senses to explore and learn about the different kinds of plants.

They even got to bring home a microgreen that they had potted individually at the farm!*

5) Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden

Opening Hours: 8am to 7pm (last admission at 6:30pm). Closed on Mondays (except when Monday falls on a designated public holiday)

Address: 481 Bukit Timah Rd, Singapore 259769 (at the Singapore Botanic Gardens)

Cost: Admission is free

More info:

The children at LSS are always taught to love nature. So for the holidays, the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is somewhere we think parents can bring your kids.

This garden is the first garden in Asia ever dedicated to children. Its theme of ‘Life on Earth Depends on Plants’ aims to educate and instil a love for nature in children. The Garden is a complete nature-learning environment, where children can delve deeper into the ecology of plants and our environment through discovery and experiential learning.

There is much space for exploration, adventure and play, with a farm, an orchard, and a forest with its own stream and ponds. Young adventure seekers can explore the suspension bridge and nature play areas; budding naturalists can walk along the stream and climb into the tree-houses; and our urban gardeners can observe how plants grow and pick up some gardening tips!

While the holidays often mean more time and effort is needed for parents to create a holiday programme itinerary for your child, it is also a fulfilling month where you can spend time to play and grow with your children.
Make use of this chance before the kids grow up, to create wonderful memories that you can look back on fondly.
We wish all families happy holidays!
