CHILDREN in Selangor Community Development Department (Kemas) kindergartens will be able to enjoy more learning experiences through an interactive game, Printis.

Developed and manufactured locally, the game will soon be introduced at 288 kindergartens in the Petaling District.

Targeted at children aged between four and six years, the game is aimed at building creativity, improving motor skills and encouraging brain development.

“I’m so glad that we got to work with a local manufacturer and introduce Printis to our Kemas kindergartens, ” said state entrepreneur, rural, village and traditional village development committee chairman Rodziah Ismail after launching the Printis programme at Dewan Teratai in Section 19, Shah Alam.

She added that proper education tools were needed to help shape the minds of young children so that they would benefit from the programme.

“In Finland, for example, children of similar age do not sit for examinations. They only have four hours of lessons.

“Both playing outside the classroom and learning inside the classroom are considered educational, ” said Rodziah, adding that she hoped this could be adopted here.

During the event, Kemas pupils, teachers and parents were given the chance to try out the Printis game.

The game is aimed at making learning fun while at the same time exposing students to engineering, science, arts and maths.

With just 51 building components, pupils are able to make different models using their creativity.

“We will only introduce this in the Petaling District Kemas kindergartens but I hope that it can be expanded to other Kemas kindergartens in Selangor, ” Rodziah said.
