The School at Jaya One is fast becoming a favourite destination among young families in the Klang Valley, thanks to its kid-friendly facilities and services. Joining The School’s list of enrichment activities is Sprouts, a one-stop healthcare and retail centre.
Launched in November, Sprouts is home to specialty services that will cater to the needs of young growing families. “At Sprouts, we believe in putting the care of children back into the hands of parents by empowering them with educational experiences,” said Charles Wong, founder and Executive Director of Sprouts Kids Sdn Bhd.
Navigating the outlet (the place is huge – it’s as big as three basketball courts!) may be intimidating, so here’s a rundown of what’s available at Sprouts:
Kids’ Development Club
Make an appointment to meet one of these professionals: speech therapists, occupational therapists, orthoptists, nutritionist, Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) consultants, Early Intervention Programmes (EIP) consultants, psychologists and osteopaths.
By January next year, breastfeeding clinics, sleep clinics as well as family and marriage counseling will also be added to the fold.
The Kids’ Developmental Club is by appointment only.
In addition to general pediatric clinics, Level M is where there are allergy clinics, growth clinics and services that are related to the developmental aspects of a child. At the moment, Sprouts is offering discounts for vaccination for a limited period and whilst stocks last.
The Kids’ Clinic is open from 10am – 2pm, and 5pm – 9pm on weekdays, followed by 10am – 2pm on weekends.
Kids’ Retail Pharmacy
Need medication or vitamins for your little ones? There’s a retail pharmacy on Level 1 that carries pharmaceutical products (both local and imported), alongside kids’ skin and hair products, baby food and snacks, mummy essentials and more.
For the little bookworms in your family, the bookstore on Level G has a wide range of books categorised according to interest, age groups and staff recommendations. Parents can browse and shop for toys, stationery, clothes and accessories on the same floor while their kids are at Sprouts’ play area. Those feeling peckish can drop by the cafe for a quick refuel.
Coffee Mornings for Mums & Infants
Flock to Sprouts’ coffee mornings on Fridays from 11.30am – 12pm to meet other mums and get expert advice. In December, top up your knowledge on children’s developmental milestones, speech and hearing, and how to cope with toddlers’ bedtime struggles. Interested mums are encouraged to call Sprouts to secure a seat.
Sprouts is located at 100-G.029, Block J, The School, Jaya One, No. 72A Jalan Universiti, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. For more information about Sprouts and its latest offerings, check out their website or Facebook page.
