Singapore puts its energy into raising smart and environmentally aware children, they regularly top the list of ‘smartest children in the world’ for math and science and the Jacob Ballas is the first garden in Asia dedicated to children. They also have two national days a year, in July & October, dedicated to children – to celebrate their achievements and show appreciation.
