What is the difference between holiday camps and weekly classes?

Our holiday camps are 5-day programmes, runs from 9 AM to 4 PM daily, that combine various activities for children aged from 5 to 14 years.
Weekly classes are 75 minutes, one time per week, and focused on one type of activity — engineering, coding, or robotics.

We have courses for children of all ages, starting from 3 yo kids. For preschoolers, we have an ABC Tech course. Lego robotics and Maker programmes are available for children aged from 6 to 13 years old.
The Maker holiday camp is suitable for children from 5 to 14 years old.

Can parents sit-in and observe the class?

No, it's drop-off classes, we have a good teacher-to-child ratio, so you can be sure that kids will be supervised, while parents can have their own time and relax.

What are the Locations of your classes?

Now it's open at our Maker place - 232 River Valley Road.

You can WhatsApp 82646655 any time, we are ready to help 24/7. Usually, we have teachers in the office from 8 AM to 7 PM daily, but better to drop us a message if you plan to visit.

When do I have to make the payment? And how do I make payment?

Our friendly accountant will send you an invoice, so you can do a bank transfer or card payment.

Will there be any make-up classes provided if my child misses a class?

Sure, notify us if you can't come and we will organize a make-up class for your child.

About weekly classes

Does my child need to have any experience in coding/robotics?

Our classes a suitable for beginners, so all kids are welcome! Our friendly teachers will identify your child's level and interests and will make sure that the program fits his/her needs!

What course should we sign up for?

Everything depends on the age of the child and their interests. Contact us at +65 82646655 or send us an email at info@maker.sg and we would be happy to help!

Do you provide a certificate upon completion of this course?

Yes, all kids will receive a certificate, t-shirt, and water bottle at the end of the course.

How many students are there in a class?

We start class from 1 student and usually there are small classes of 3-5 kids with 1-2 teachers to lead.

About camp

What should my child bring/wear to the camp?

We provide all equipment for camp activities. Kids just need to wear comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle with them that they are able to refill in the camp.

What are the drop-off and pick-up times?

Teachers always wait for kids downstairs in all our locations to help them to come to class. Teachers are downstairs from 8:30 till at least 9:15 to meet kids.

Can I sign my child up for more than one camp programme?

Yes. Each camp programme is different and has no repetitive activities, so your child can enjoy them all.

Can you provide halal/vegetarian food for my children?

Yes, we can provide halal and vegetarian food, as well as dairy-free, gluten-free, and any other food requirements that are required.

Camp location

Is your camp location permanent, or does it change every season?

All our locations are permanent; all addresses are on our site. We have West, Novena, East and Central locations available for both Maker subjects every season.

Do you have parking?

We do not have designated parking, but all our venues have public parking, just downstairs or within walking distance. It will not be a problem for you to find parking nearby to drop your child off at the MAKER camp.

If I can not drop my child myself?

We have an agreement with the school bus company, which provides small vehicles, so kids only travel briefly. Bus can come in the morning and pick up your child before the camp, making their way to campus. The bus can collect kids from the camp in the evening and bring them home. This will save you time.

Can I trust the school bus?

We cooperate with Schoolber - a school bus company. They provide buses to all our camps. Of course, there could be delays, and cars change at the last minute, as this is a road - always hard to predict - but they do their best to serve all kids and deliver them to camp.

Should my child come and go back to the exact location?

This is up to you - the bus company is very flexible so that you can use different locations for pick up, drop-offs, and even other days. Just make sure you let us know the plan in advance.

Teachers qualification

All our teachers had high technical education and trained to lead the lessons. They have big experience in our centers and camps.

How many teachers do you have with kids?

This depends on class, kids' age and location, but the ratio is always one teacher to 5 kids or less. Maker courses always need more support from teachers, so we give this support by having fewer kids in a group.

Do you have an age group of kids?

Yes, kids will be grouped by age, as in MAKER - the task level depends on the child's age, and older kids can receive more complex and challenging tasks. Small kids can get something simpler to fall in love with coding, robotics or engineering.


Will each child get an individual robot?

This depends on the activity. We have group activities in small groups of 2-3 kids maximum. Such activities help grow teamwork, communication, cooperation, presenting, and debating skills.

We have many activities that children must finish alone - like creating their own robots that they will take home, engineering projects, etc.
At the same time, we have competitions that could involve bigger groups of 4-5 kids; these are usually engineering competitions that involve many hands.

Just be sure that all kids are involved fully in each activity. We understand that hands-on experience is vital for kids, and we do our best to provide it at the highest level.

Is your equipment genuine?

We work only with original equipment, which is very important for kids. We understand that we have a critical mission to open the world of MAKER, Engineering, Coding and Robotics to kids, and this can be done only with high-quality, original robots, Lego, and all building materials. This is one of our key values - give kids a try at many different high-quality equipment available on the market.


How safe is your course?

Safety is our TOP priority. All our camp activities undergo risk assessment, and all teachers are constantly trained. Our safety manager keeps watching CCTV the whole camp day; CCTV covers all corners in all our locations.


What if my child is not feeling well?

Of course, please keep your child home always when you feel it's needed. We are very flexible and supportive and will refund or reschedule without questions. Any registration fee will be taken - we always give a full refund.

What happens if camp is planned on a public holiday?

We are open on all public holidays and are happy to welcome your kids. You can choose to come or opt for fewer days that week.

Goodie bags

What will my child receive at the end of the camp?

Your child will receive a branded MAKER t-shirt, certificate in our reusable MAKER branded bag, sun hat, water bottle, and link to digital photos and videos from the camp. See you in the camp!
