“How can I keep them busy?” Such is the dilemma of parents every year during school break. With the wide array of summer art classes and sports activities these days, however, that concern can now be easily addressed. Does your daughter show interest in doing ballet? Send her to a dance center then. Is your son a budding martial artist? Let him try out at a taekwondo center. Would you like your youngest to have an early appreciation for the arts? Introduce him to some arts and crafts. Problem solved.
But what if these 3 kids belonged to just one family – yours – and their summer schedule has you traveling to three different places at different schedules every single day? That’s not so ideal anymore, is it?
Such is the happy problem that gave birth to Kids Klub Philippines, a center that aims to develop kids’ creativity and talent in a holistic manner. Founded by a group of friends headed by Arturo Alindada, himself a parent to three kids aged 7, 4, and 2, Kids Klub Philippines opened just February of this year. “It was such a hassle to go from one place to another, especially with the traffic situation in Manila, so my wife and I thought, ‘Why don’t we put everything under one roof?’” By chance, they found other parents who had the same predicament, and within a few months they collaborated to put up the center.
