#CrunchTest: Malaysian Kids Were Taught the Importance of Going Green. Here Is What Happened

Updated: Dec 10, 2018

It is never too early to learn the importance of going green. In the case of three Malaysian parents, they thought that it was well about time for their little ones to learn. Especially here in Malaysia where... environmental awareness can be somewhat... lacking.


Of course, teaching kids such a heavy subject can be tricky, but luckily enough, there is an education centre for children that specifically caters to just that. Located at The Curve, Green Guardian Education Centre aims to educate children about the importance of the environment through engaging and entertaining educational content. You know, digitalised visual displays, hands-on tools and all that jazz. Fancy stuff, amirite?


Kids these days. So lucky!


In any case, after classes were over, we got these parents to speak up on their thoughts about this unique centre. This is what they have to say:

1. Arriving at Green Guardian Education Centre, what was your first impression of the centre’s environment (eg: facilities, service etc)?

The environment looked clean and safe for kids. I wished there was more carpeting just in case kids fall on the floor.


2. Share with us 3 things that you like about the class.

The virtual experience is something really cool and it's good that the subject of environmental awareness was made to be understandable for kids. I was hoping there would be some physical experience rather than just visual and virtual experience i.e. toys or physical machines.


3. In your opinion, what did your children learn from the classes that you believe is great for their development?

Saving electricity and ocean awareness. Those two stood out in the programme. And the recycling paper activity could be more appealing by focusing on not just recycling but paper usage in general.


4. Are there any improvements that you would like to suggest to the centre that will be beneficial for your children's development?

Other than the above, we would prefer some physical and tactile feedback activities that would distract them from their daily activities that don’t give them that i.e. tablets, digital devices.


5. Would you recommend other parents to visit the centre with the price at RM38 (Promo) & RM100 (Non-promo)?

Definitely, if the programme is much longer and involves more awareness for the kids. We understand that the experience was just a short trial.


6. What is your overall rating of the experience at Green Guardian Education Centre? (rate from 1-5)

Definitely a 5. We believe in the initiative and getting kids to be aware at a young age.


Comel Azhar

1. Arriving at Green Guardian Education Centre, what was your first impression of the centre’s environment (eg: facilities, service etc)?

I was so impressed with the use of digital technology that would help kids to understand the subject matter more easily.


2. Share with us 3 things that you like about the class.

A) conducive environment in the room; B) deployment of visibility and hearing skills to kids; and C) great method to garner kids’ interest in science.


3. In your opinion, what did your children learn from the classes that you believe is great for their development?

How to appreciate nature. Build awareness of how to take care of the environment on the whole planet 🌏


4. Are there any improvements that you would like to suggest to the centre that will be beneficial for your children's development?

To include more subjects for kids to learn more.


5. Would you recommend other parents to visit the centre with the price at RM38 (Promo) & RM100 (Non-promo)?

I would definitely recommend parents to visit the centre. The methods and technology that they use at the centre would allow the kids to learn and understand science at affordable prices.

1. Arriving at Green Guardian Education Center, what was your first impression of the centre’s environment (eg: facilities, service etc)?

It lacks warmth and colour which themed education centres for kids usually have. Maybe the lighting was too dark when we first arrived too.


2. Share with us 3 things that you like about the class.

They loved it, and could grasp on to what they learnt. But it was a bit too long (with no break); I would have preferred it if there was a break and snacks or drinks for the kids.


3. In your opinion, what did your children learn from the classes that you believe is great for their development?

They mostly remembered the part about electricity.


4. Are there any improvements that you would like to suggest to the center that will be beneficial for your children's development?

Make each room more fun and less bare. Kids also love sensory, so adding visuals would be great.


5. Would you recommend other parents to visit the center with the price at RM38 (Promo) & RM100 (Non-promo)?

Promo maybe, but full price, nope.


6. What is your overall rating of the experience at Green Guardian Education Centre? (rate from 1-5)

2.5/5 and as stated on the web, there was a free car gift/toy, but we didn't get that overall experience.


How much did Green Guardian Education Centre score on the Crunch O'Meter?


A 3.8! Maybe it's time to bring your kids over for some edutainment?

Psstt, Green Guardian is now offering a 2-hour program at RM38 instead of its usual RM100 fee--and it comes with a free DIY solar car kit too. Come get it while it's still hot!
