Ang ku kuehs originated from Southern China, Fujian and are traditionally made to celebrate the baby’s first month. It is believed that when the child steps on the ka ta kueh, followed by stepping on a new pair of shoes, everything will be smooth sailing in the child’s life!

Kodecoon Online Webinar

Join us for an interactive online fireside chat with Mr. Chong Ee-Jay and Mr. Deddy Setiadi from Kodecoon Academy as we discuss managing our children’s screen time during this circuit breaker period.

From the closure of physical enrichment classes to shifting to full-home based learning and now the extended circuit breaker measures, our lives have all been affected somewhat. It was tough for some – dealing with issues like having no laptops, setting up or figuring out how Zoom works, and more.

Kodecoon Online Webinar May 2020

This has forced everyone out of their comfort zone especially in the area of education and this is a good thing. When the circuit breaker is over, we all would have learned some lasting lessons on how to use technology and how education technology could be sustainable in the long run.

Increasingly, we have heard from and understand concerns from parents about the amount of screen time kids are now exposed to. If you are sharing the same sentiments, this online webinar is for you! You can register for the event here.
