As part of KK Women's and Children's Hospital's 155th Anniversary celebrations this year, we are conducting two public forums packed with informative talks and interactive workshops on 29 and 30 June! Titled ‘Parenthood – an amazing journey’, these two public forums are suitable for mums, dads and parents-to-be! Do join us at this forum if you wish to learn how to take care of yourself and baby during pregnancy as well as get tips from the experts on nurturing a young child. A celebrity mum will also be sharing her personal experiences on motherhood and parenting!
If you are still wondering how you can keep your kids out of your hair this upcoming June holidays, just bring them to Sentosa. There are loads of free activities for children, allowing them to have oodles of fun through live, play-acted story-telling adventures, puppetry, musicals, and even ukulele workshops! What's more, you get to bond with your kids through the fun and play.

Are we preparing our children enough to take on this future?
