A city where kids can do big things, KidZania Manila is an exciting destination for dreamers ages four to 14 to role-play various careers in a safe, secure environment. With about 8,000 square meters of educational play space, the kid-sized metropolis is designed to be as child-friendly as possible—from the look and feel of each establishment, to the professional and pleasant staff that guide and care for kid visitors.
“From the planning stage and construction, to everyday operations and management, the safety of kids is always among our foremost priorities,” said Maricel Pangilinan Arenas, KidZania Manila State Governor. “We have stringent child-safety measures in place to ensure that kids nurture their talents in an environment that keeps them safe.”
A first-of-its-kind in the country, KidZania Manila is a mini-metropolis customized for kids. The play city features smaller-scale yet completely functional replicas of city structures such as a bank, fire station, hospital, TV and radio stations, theater, and even its own Supreme Court and tax office.
This strict attention to details is reflected not only in designing and building a hyper-real replica of a working city, but also in the safety and security features of the entire facility. KidZania Manila has anti-slip flooring and no sharp edges to avoid accidents, as well as heavily secured access points and clear directional signage. Also in place are professional security measures, including CCTV monitoring cameras, a paging system, and emergency facility features, to ensure that each kid remains safe while inside the premises.
In addition, kids and their parents are fitted with matching RFID (radio frequency identification) security bracelets when they check in at the KidZania Manila International Airport. These devices keep track of the kids’ location at all times and ensure that no child can leave the facility without being accompanied or picked-up by their registered adult companion.
Care in Every Corner
KidZania Manila also went to great lengths to ensure that the entire play city is accessible to all kids, including those with special needs and disabilities. Aside from elevators transferring from floor-to-floor, stair lifts are also provided for establishments or levels accessed through stairs. The comfort rooms are compliant with Batas Pambansa Bilang 344 (An Act to Enhance the Mobility of Disabled Persons by Requiring Certain Buildings, Institutions, Establishments and Public Utilities to Install Facilities and Other Devices) and its Amended Implementing Rules and Regulations (the “Accessibility Law”).
Information in establishments within the city is also available in audio-visual medium.
Friendly, professional and accommodating, the KidZania Manila staff are also equipped with the expertise to accommodate and assist visiting kids. They have completed a series of training sessions, including the KITE (Knowledge Integration Training for Expertise) Training Program, to ensure that the operation, safety, and experience of KidZania Manila meet global quality standards.
Key frontline personnel are also trained in the provision of first-aid and carry basic medical kits with them at all times. In addition, the play city has a dedicated, fully qualified first aid team that can attend to medical concerns.
