i visited the centre and talked to one teacher, was told they have 90 children who will share a big hall and be seperated by cupboard. It is fully air-coned, but they will be NO outdoor time at all. So the kids will stay in the air-con class for the whole day. This makes me hesitate to send my child to this centre as I once read in a book that minimum 3 hours outdoor time is essential for kids around 2-6 years old, althoug this looks not practical for parents who both work full-time. I will bring my child to downstair playground at least 2 times in weekday night, plus he has his own outdoor time around 1-1.5 hrs arranged by cc.

I think it depends on the location of centres. For those in HDB estate, they are use the public playground around, for the in the Jurong Point, there will be no such facilities in the mall so they skip the outdoor activities.

Even if they don't go outdoor, they should have an indoor playground. I know that Just Kids at Bukit Batok and I think Kinderland at Chua Chu Kang Centre have indoor play areas because outdoor playgrounds are too far away or are across many busy streets.

If you're concerned about outdoor play, then maybe you should look elsewhere. But if you're just concerned about whether kids get to play at a playground, and you can accept the air-con environment, think about the benefits of having a private, indoor playground.
1. Rain or shine, still can play.
2. Maintenance and cleaning done by centres themselves so any repairs or replacements can be done without having to wait for government to take action. In other words, centres have the opportunity to provide clean and age-appropriate and safe playground equipment.
3. If there's breakout of HFMD, centres who use public playgrounds have to cancel outdoor play. At centres with private playgrounds, kids may still be able to use the playground.

There is a childcare near my company which is exactly like what you talked about. Own playground, air-coned in classroom and sleeping area, coz they rent the place from company. But for those in HDB estate, probably what they can do is to let the children play in the public playground, they could not affort the place and i don't think they are allowed to build up their own playground around.

in fact, in my opinion, the kids should expose to sunshine for certain time in a day, good for maintaining their bone strong and healty. so i would perfer them to have some outdoor activities at least one hour per day. that is what I concern if putting them in a fully air-coned cc w.o. any outdoor activities.
