One of Nigeria’s most innovative banks, Guaranty Trust Bank, has launched a digital playground for kids to have fun, learn and interact. Dubbed the GTBank Playcentre, the playground is situated in Lekki, Lagos State.
The newly launched play centre gives children “the digital experience of a lifetime.” It is equipped with a wide range of interactive games that gives kids a fun and immersive digital experience whilst aiding their mental and intellectual development.
Open to children between the ages of 5-10 years, the centre is divided in to 3 activity areas; Sketch Town, Leggo City, and the Chalkboard. The Sketch town utilises 3D Paper Crafting where kids can design cars, build mansions, launch rockets, and colour all their sketches to life.
The Leggo City engages the minds of the kids as they develop their own fictional characters through adventurous Lego games while the Chalkboard encourages kids to express their unspoken words/drawings on the great wall of PlayCentre.
“Our (GTBank) new Play Centre will give children a tension-free space to build these critical developmental skills, expose them to new and emerging digital technologies, and, most importantly, give them a wonderful time out.”Mr Segun Agbaje, Chief Executive Officer, Guaranty Trust Bank plc.
