Children’s city of professions “CityZen”
The children’s city of professions “Cityzen” is a model of a real city. The “Cityzen” is based on two important ideas for children’s development: education and amusement. The center is provided for children aged 4-14 who will be able to get to know about more than 60 professions in the environment of games as well as to gain new knowledge and skills.
“Cityzen” has its square, streets and establishments such as the police, rescue service and chocolate plant. “Cityzen” children make their own decisions on what establishment to visit, what profession to choose and how to earn money or spend the money they earned.
It should be noted that this initiative provided for children was implemented in different cities and Yerevan joined their number becoming the only one in the region.
