A farm-themed playground has just opened in Kuningan City, South Jakarta, for children to learn about farming and food production. The “edutainment” park Youreka Kids Farm allows children aged 3 to 12 to experience farming through roleplay, using animatronic cattle and toy crops to mimic real fields and factories.
During the soft opening held on Nov. 22, director Michael Ruly Atmadja said the idea for Youreka Kids Farm came from his concerns about children from the alpha generation expecting everything to arrive instantly. He believed there was a missing link between formal education and everyday life. This concern, along with the realization that Jakarta lacks places for children to learn and play at the same time, led to the development of the playground.
“We want all children who play here to discover something new,” said Karina Rianti Triatmodjo, General Manager.
Youreka Kids Farm features eight fields, including the Cow Barn, Chicken Farm and Coconut Plantation, as well as seven workshops, including Cheese Factory, House of Tea, and Fishball Kitchen.
The children will be supervised by trained instructors and are guaranteed a safe and clean learning environment. Other facilities include a multipurpose room, a cafe, nursery, lockers and a merchandise corner for visitors.
