What is Advance?

Children aged 3 to 5 years old are fascinated and curious about the world. At this age, there are tons of milestones your child will achieve, whether they’re physical, social or emotional. Thus, it’s a great time for kids to explore many different things and discover what they like to do. 

However, attempting all these classes and courses can be rather costly. Hence Mummyfique came up with Advance, where one card gives you access to free trials and many different established and reputable centres. Even better, you don’t have to source for these places yourself – we’ve done all the legwork for you. Additionally the list will keep growing to offer more to mothers.

Moreover, mums can use the site as a resource to organise monthly playdates for their kids to meet and explore new and exciting places or playgrounds, for instance.

Advance's Launch at Trehaus

On 14 December, Mummyfique invited a select group of guests and their children for Advance’s launch. This pre-schooler starter kit for three to five year olds features a specially curated set of trial classes including gymnastics, swimming and STEAM learning. 

Other items in the kit included mummy-approved BusyMat activity mats, all natural Zoo-vite vitamins, Lilo Ikan Bilis powder and Pearlie White oral care. 

To redeem this, the kids had to complete their Advance passport by visiting all the booths and getting stamps. Eligible pre-schoolers received an Advance kit, OETEO packs and Gastromania gelato vouchers. Meanwhile, older or younger children also got gifts such as magnetic whiteboards, gelato vouchers and OETEO packs.

Advance members receive a free trial and uniform and no registration fees (worth up to $295), valid till 15th January 2020. Hence, your little ones can see if they have the interest and passion to become the next martial arts master.

Additionally, HST Medical, a local brand, had a station where kids could match animals as well as sample all Zoo-Vite‘s vitamins or supplements. The range includes calcium, Vitamin C and DHA vitamins jellies, to make it easier for kids to get their supplements. 

In particular, we love the Zoo-Vite Immune, Flu Resist and Germ Buster, since they all aim to boost a child’s resistance against getting sick. The Immune jelly sticks also eases allergy symptoms, while the Flu Resist counters upper respiratory infections. Finally, the Germ Buster wards off invading germs. 

BusyMat & Lilo
We love these reusable BusyMats, where kids can work on their motor skills by colouring on the silicone mats.

Additionally, guests also got to bring home different sample packs of Lilo‘s products. These include not just ikan bilis powder, but scallop, mushroom and white bait too!

The children also had fun learning Mandarin with Han Language Centre, where they could colour a worksheet with a cartoon character. Before they could colour anything, they were asked what colour it was in Chinese. 

Another activity they tried at the event were picture cards. After children picked a few cards, the teacher asked them a few questions in Mandarin, according to their level of proficiency.
